What Saguaro said to the clouds....

The saguaro look like they're hiking up the hill. Love the diagonal broken by the cactus and the dramatic sky. Beautiful image, Patricia! #1180825

I agree. The diagonal line really sets it off, and the cactus add that little extra. Great shot! #7946275

Thank you Dee and Chris,
This is a very familiar spot for me. The photo "What Saguaro said to the moon..." was taken at this spot. This was my first hike up this trail in over four months, so it was wonderful to see the cactus still standing (they do fall over, like trees, in wind storms or old age). We've also been blessed with clouds lately- no rain, just clouds, but that works for my photographic eye ... cheers!! #7947049

Hi Dianna, well thanks for letting me know....I haven't gotten around to reading Photoflash just yet....wow, what an honor....I really need to figure a way to get more photography into my life.....it has been an addiction now for the last five years....so every weekend is spent either shooting or at the computer....Thanks ever so much again!!!! Have a wonderful evening....Cheers, #8017180
