What a great scene! I like the rock with its pointed snout - with the two Saguaro behind looking almost like horns, Thus it looks almost like the typical dried steer skull on the desert floor - the stereotypical look at the desert floor to this New Englander :)
Once again, the misty, subdued tones enchant me. Gorgeous cactus shape in the foreground. Quite a prickly star in the desert stage.
Oh, I don't know that it's so desolate. There is life, and green (although spiny) and plenty of nice, fresh air. Looks kinda pretty, actually...
Life blooms even in desolation. Thanks for sharing.
