    Very nice Isabel. You did well not to blow out the reds, they often are. The detail is still there in them. Nice depth of field.

      Jim – High praise indeed. It was over my head, or almost, with only the sky behind. Maybe that helped.

    Makes me feel warm just to look at your photo! I think I’d like it hanging on my wall of my sewing room these cold January days.

  3. Judith says:

    Cactus flowers are so lush, in great contrast to their dry environment – a celebration of life! Beautiful photo.

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Judith – Thanks! We see very few of the flowers in our winter sojourn. Most arrive after we leave. But I’m pretty sure I don’t want to brave their spring temps just to see more cactuses in bloom!
