I’m not sure what this desert flower is called (it may be called a yellow double pod) but it is definitely a tough little plant. Not only was it growing in rock and dry sand it was back under a rock overhang so when it rained it would only get water if the wind was blowing in the right direction. Captured in the canyon below Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah.

My photographs are not always technically correct, I tend to break the rules but I do that knowing what the rules are and having a reason to do so. My photographic images are what and how I see the world around me in my minds eye—they are who I am.

    Aren’t they amazing, how they grow out in the desert? A wonderful composition! I like the contrast against the rock. I had hoped you were able to identify this wildflower for me, since I have one in my gallery, too, Jasper and flower
    I suppose it’s in the mustard family, with four petals. Someone suggested Double bladderpod, but I’m not sure.
