Scorpio Rising

Organ Pipe National Monument, AZ, 1978.

The scoprion snakes its way up the saguaro. Antares, heart of the scorpion, is the bright star nestled in the arms of the saguaro.

Actually, the constellation is named Scorpius, but I called it Scorpio in honor of the 60s cult movie, Scorpio Rising.
