    Nice. I like the warm colors that make it feel desert-y..

    I agree, the light on the cactus is gorgeous. I like your composition, with lots of cloud-filled sky.

    How big would that cactus be?

    um... medium size?

    Seriously though, the first "arm" on the right was over my head, so I'd guess about 15-20 feet, 4.5 - 6 meters. It's pretty average really, you can see the arms have just begun to grow. i'll find a bigger one next time and stand next to it for reference :D

    i guess I should have left the dog in a couple of compositions for scale... i kept yelling at her that she was wasting my good light. :lol:

    Only if the dog would hike his leg. :) I miss those majestic beauties. Great shot.

    Looks warm- too much extreme on this side of the desert right now.

    Could have used a sombrero wearing bandito taking a siesta for scale (IMHO).

    Nice shot.
