Siobhan, your opening image reminds me of snow at it’s best, before it becomes dirty or melted. But we don’t often picture it on a cactus, which makes a wonderful image. Your beach image made me imagine the cold of a wintry day in Oregon – the texture is perfect.
Thanks, Tina! Yes, snow accumulating on cactus makes a great opportunity for photos. The seaside picture was taken in July, but it was COLD! Still a nice place to visit, no matter the season. 🙂
Beautifully expressed and photographed Siobhan
Thanks, Sarah! A fun challenge.
I certainly would not want to put my hand into that first image. Beautiful photos SB. Thank you.
Thanks, Jude! Yeah, we use extra long tweezers to weed around the cactus. 🙂🌵
Love each one!
Thank you, Jessica!
Great textures. Excellent.
Thank you, John! 😁
Beautiful images – all of them. The first one a stunner and your Oregon beach perfect in both colours and textures.
Thank you, Ann-Christine! It was a good challenge this week.
Beautiful texture selections! Love the last one especially. 🙂
Thank you, Amy! Lots of wonderful texture and color in Utah.
Great first shot – haven’t experience cacti in snow before.
Thanks. I keep thinking the snow and cold temps will kill my cactus, but they keep getting bigger. 😐 Not sure how to prune them. 🌵
