Thess photos were taken at the Saguaro National Park west of Tucson, Arizona. Living in Arizona I thought it would be perfect to have the signature cactus of the old desert southwest in a photo with the great Hale-Bopp comet of 1997. As the saguaro stands centinal over the sonoran desert of the southwest and in Arizona, the great celestial object of the century is wisking by while we are about to bid farewell to the largest comet of the century.

Photo 1: My best picture so far. Taken with a Pentax P30T 50mmF2.8 approx 30 sec. Fugicolor 1600ASA and a fill flash was used to highlight the cactus.

Photo 2: Not a bad shot either. Taken with a Pentax P30T 50mmF2.8 approx 20 sec. Fugicolor 1600ASA and a fill flash was used to highlight the cactus.

Photo 3: Used a halogen flashlight to highlight the saguaros, but a little too bright. Taken with a Pentax P30T 50mmF2.8 approx 25 sec. ugicolor 1600ASA. A fill flash was used to highlight the cactus.

Photo 4: Taken with a Nikon 5005 35-70mmF3.3 lens. Set at 35mm. Used new Kodak Gold Max 800ASA film.

Photo 5: Taken with a Nikon 5005 35-70mmF3.3 lens. Set at 70mm. Used new Kodak Gold Max 800ASA film.
