Theres a new Cactus in Town

By liparig
This Saguaro cactus in the deserted Goldfield Station gold mine in Arizona seems to be protecting the town looking for ruffians like a new sheriff. All it needed was a new shinny badge.

Applied Sepia Photo filter in Photoshop on the bottom half of the image to give it a more western old feel to it.

A very cool image-- well seen and well done-- The cactus does seem to be guarding the antiques-- no hiding under that tree!

Interesting shot, I wouldn't have known about the sepia until I read your description, it just looks so right. Nice composition and perspective with the buildings on the right.
