DescriptionA partially eclipsed sun rises over saguaro cacti in the desert south of Wickenburg, Arizona. This image was made near the time of maximum obscuration for this event that occurred on May 21, 1993. Partial eclipses that occur near sunrise or sunset are easy and safe to watch because the sun is naturally filtered by the thick atmosphere near the horizon.
Frank Zullo, Phoenix, AZ Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement I have been a professional photographer for about 40 years. Whether as a documentary film cameraman, a television news cameraman or a trudging-through-the-wilds, staying-up-all-night nature photographer, I always seem to be looking through a viewfinder exploring and trying to capture one of life's many interesting aspects.
I am a true lover of the desert with its hard-edged landscapes and wide open skies. Most recently I have been focusing my explorations on Native American rock art and archaeoastronomy.
