Just wanted to pop in, say "hi," and wish everyone a Happy Spring! :)
I still browse through TE from time to time, and was inspired by a few of Cricri's pictures of her visit here last year...enough so to break down and post one myself. lol
Having spent a lot of time out in the desert recently, I wanted to share a little slice of its detailed beauty, albeit prickly. :P
Hope you're all doing well. Take good care!

An excellent close up and wonderful textures of this cactus.
Very beautiful with its spines lit up and coloured by the setting sun.
Best regards, Paul

It's nice to see you here, even if it's just a brief visit. This is an amazing close-up with a great light and a pattern looking like an abstract painting. It's a very original and interesting composition.

Il me semble que cela fait bien longtemps que l'on ne t'as pas vu dans ces pages, mais tu reviens avec un bang avec cette photo qui fait que l'on se pose des questions.

Buona primavera anche a te.

Well look who's back! Hey there Jason!
It's nice to see one of your beautiful photos pop up again here on TE. This one is great. I love the way the reddish light from the sun is illuminating the needles on the cactus. Great composition and execution. This is a creative way to present a desert scene. :-)
