I've been deprived of your photos for much too long... it's going to take me eons to catch up with everyone. I've missed you all and the light you bring to my life.
The Sonoran high desert around Tucson Arizona received a rare amount of rain this year. As a consequence there is vegetation blooming all over the place.
Cholla Cactus is like so many wild things: so lovely, so dangerous. It has a way with the light that I find irresistible, however.
