This is a small ground cover plant with frost on it from a venture through the Colorado Rockies.
The whole image might be 5-6″ across.
Shot with a 100 mm macro lens.
And they were all quite colorful plants of varying colors and some blue sky bouncing in.
This looks like an amazing contest. The photography on there is stunning. What is different is that the 5 top winning images are marketed to 1000 art buyers and some winning images have been seen and published.
I am pleased to say I have judged it three times. The price is right as well: $25 for 5 image entries.

Today we went to West Bay and we got there by water taxi. A much faster route then the road and more adventurous as well.
The ride took maybe 10 minutes and you get to see some really nice homes along the way. (more…)
Sajuaro National Park is a very cool place to photograph! A very diverse plant population, Native American petroglyphs, and beautiful desert light.
I passed through a few weeks ago and had about 2 afternoons to explore and photograph. The light was perfect and then it wasn’t. You know how it works: you want overcast and the sky is clear. You want clear skies and it’s overcast. No worries, there is no such thing as bad light, right!
In Sajuaro West, I was driving the road and hoping for blooming cactus but I was to early. I believe, at least this year, that mid_April to May will be the best time for blooming cactus. At least that is my guess.
The Ocotillo were doing well however, so I looked hard at those and I did find one blooming Hedgehog Cactus. As you can see it was overcast skies and I worked within the limits of that light. This image still has directional light or that back-lit feel and the image benefits from the softer contrast.
This is the Hedgehog Cactus that I found blooming, the only one. I was very happy to find this one blooming, anything blooming, but I have since found hillsides of them blooming (mtk). I shot it and was happy at the time, but in hindsight I am not that fond of all the clutter; the grasses and such. (more…)
