    very nice indeed. did you use monochrome channel-mixer to produce these? and did you use lens filters (or 'software' filters in-camera)?
    the first picture is wonderful.

    Thanks! I had forgotten my polarizer -- it would have helped with the cactus skeleton. These were both shot in RAW on the 7D with my Sigma 10-20mm and converted in CS4 with mixer.

    that is a 'cactus skeleton' ?! wow i never knew about that or even considered such things exist! i have a small collection of 8 cacti here (mostly S.American species). they are about 18 months old :) yours appear a bit more mature lol.

    that's excellent. i'm amazed how solid these parts have developed over time. care to guess how old they may get in Arizona?

    Well, it must be quite old. A Saguaro doesn't even start to branch until it is 50-70 years old.
