.. several weeks now am taking shoots of this splendid huge leaves Cacti.. her sharp serrated on sides blue green grey, fleshy leaves.. the dry cut off ones in wonderful colors and images within..
branded by human mashete , burning sun and hot winds.. rainfalls.. underneath the tarantula nets and dark cave like holes.. gatherings of nature debris.. by sun..
Found such beauty.. in striking, intensity.. and softest of hues too.. walk by her every morning towards my longtime friends' residence, from where we continue on way to morning rounds in close by park..
Did not need in photographs to enhance or other.. focuse lens from straight up downwards.... her deep saturated shadows/reflections of her leaves.. stark sunlight.. and Cactus' forms.. perform on their own..
I did creatively engage in some of the taken photographs.. and will mention so, when I upload..
Here this one is pure original photography..
add: the area I reside in since over 33 yrs. is along the outer limits of Mojave Desert..(need to recheck if I wrote name correctly).
