This week, I’m jumping into Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge with a shot taken on a hiking trip last year in the Sonoran Desert.
As we were hiking on a trail in Sedona, I was struck by this vibrant little flower bursting into bloom in the harsh desert environment. The odds of its survival are staggeringly low, yet its lovely purple blosoms are a testament to the power of the resiliency and hardiness of desert wildlife.
I’ve been keeping this image in mind as my husband makes the steady climb back to good health. It’s also a reminder to us to face hardship and challenges with optimism, resiliency, and determination.
If you’re facing challenges this week, I hope you triumph over them!
A technical note: This shot taken on my Samsung Galaxy S5 was processed in Photoshop. I added a Topaz filter to sharpen the details.
