Seems I have been sucessful at last ...

The huge white menacing cloud looming over the ridge inspired me to include it in this composition of basic yet beautiful colours of nature. All is natural here ...

Hope you find it to your liking.

Joe

Lovely menacing cloud lol.. provides a great b/g for the cacti and particularly like the inclusion of the tiny yellow flowers in the f/g.... well done on the upload is proving a mean feat at times lol.

That cloud is superb, wonderful back drop for the prickly pear: fabulous green tonal range beautifully enhanced by the inclusion of the yellow flowers in the f/g.

Any chance of a shot when it's in flower?

I love this, Joe. Some strong colour contrasts, with fantastic detail. Those tiny yellow flowers make this a big hit with me.

If it wasn't for those snails on the pear I would of passed without comment, they added so much life Smile
Joking apart, its a great contrasty image of mother nature, beautiful strong colours and detailed throughout.
