    Ooo, I like the feeling of texture in the first, and the shapes and curves and lines ... and the colours in both. I'd like to TOUCH the dead branch/tree trunk but NOT the cactus :D!!!

    I agree with LaFoto about the awesome curves and lines of the wood. Is it burned or just old and dried out?

    Thanks LaFoto, surfingfireman and Chris. The log was smooth as glass and fallen, not burnt although it seemed to have the same texture/look as charcoal. Very hard, like it was petrifying. I was thinking about sitting on it and eating some breakfast, but I thought it was too cool to take a chance on breaking something.

    The cactus is an Old Man Prickly Pear cactus (Opuntia erinacea)

    They are cool in that they produce a purple fruit, that after the little spines are scrapped/burned off and peeled, are real sweet and tasty. Nothing to mess with though, have someone else try it before you.
