Spikey Cactus

spikey cactus

Cacti are probably an everyday sight for people living in desert regions, but I look out the window of my office and all I see are lush green trees, an overcast sky and the threat of another shower of rain. They’re an exotic plant for me to see out growing in the open.

They also make for great black and white subjects as the spikes leave great long shadows against the low January sun. Expect more of these in the next few weeks!

A previous spikey photo is a lot different, and creepier!

    The contrast between the bright spikes and their dark shadows is great. Did it take long to find one at the perfect angle to the sun?!

    Thanks Kevin. No, I was lucky as I rarely wait around for light. That’s the way they were when I found them!
