    It's not really a cactus, it is a yucca known as the Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia)
  • Madeline Houston PRO 8y

    Very cool. I love Joshua trees. I didn't realize they were yuccas. I love yuccas (the regular kind) too. I love the combination of sun and dark clouds. The mountains are awesome as well.
  • Jean Neal 8y

    Nice job Chuck! Love the rainbow peaking through!!! Good combination of sun and clouds.
  • Roy 8y

    Nice shot, Chuck ... now that's some weather.
  • Kara Fuqua 8y

    Wonderful picture!
  • Joni PRO 8y

    Wow, great shot and spectacular countryside!
  • Teddy Llovet PRO 8y

    A very contrasty scene with desert hues and colorful sky.....hint of a rainbow. I think the foreground shadow might be distracting and possibly weaken the scene.
  • Chuck Abbe 8y

    I replaced this picture with this cropped version. The original had a distracting shadow across the bottom of the frame, and I think this is definitely a more pleasing composition. Thanks Teddy!

    marvelous...reminds me of my trip outside Sedona, Arizona.
  • Sallyanne Morris 8y
