Cactus, Blooming

 in the Arizona Desert

in the Arizona Desert

Finally found someplace warm. The desert! This was the first cactus I saw in bloom. Of course, it was high noon, and shooting white was impossible. But I like the over-exposed flower anyway. It, in a way, symbolizes how I am feeling. A bit over-exposed to all this warmth and sunshine.

    I know exactly how you feel, Bo! That is an attractive and typical look at a cactus!

    I really like this capture with the way it is composed and the brightness. Very nice. I was wondering if you had been caught in any storms but it seems as if you are in a lot of sunshine. Shine on… 🙂

    In spite of the light, this is a very nice capture and perspective.
