I think that's an exceptionally well balanced composition! (OK)

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Saguaro Cactus is amazing to see, especially for someone that has not seen any. I was in Tucson 2015 and was able to see and capture my first view. I am amaze at how old and tall they get.

You captured this well Bob. The composition is delightful and I can understand why you took this in the vertical mode. Probably so you could get all of it in frame and have some sky. Very well planned.

Wow that's beautiful, and the green/yellow and blue really make it special. I can't help but notice that it looks like they grow in spirts, at least that's what the rings around it look like and am amazed how tall it is compared to the others. I always think of cactus as small desperate things but this one looks like it's found a good spot. Thank you for sharing this! S-

Chuck, Dave, and St3v3, thanks for looking. Saguaro cactus can grow quite large. They usually don't grow arm for the first 75-100 years of age. They are indigenous to Arizona, primarily, with a smattering of them growing in small parts of both California and New Mexico.

I may be heading to the Mojave National Preserve soon and will look for them! S-
