Using Flash and Colored Gels

Southwest Arizona: Composed using a tripod, flash, and colored gel filters. First, I taped a green gel filter onto a camera flash unit.  Then, I manually fired the flash into the cactus while exposing for the background cactus and lights.  Throwing colored light onto the same colored object will make that object super-saturated.

The hardest part here was stringing those Christmas lights on the background cactus!
