Looking through my photos today and found this among those not shared with CMA.
Organ Pipe cactus bloom
After an enjoyable evening with friends we emerged to find their Organ Pipe cactus covered with magnificent blooms. They said they would last until shortly after 6 am the next morning. Surprised and pleased with the quality of this Samsung Galaxy S7 phone image.
I've lived in AZ for 18 years...first as a snowbird and for the last 12 as a full-time resident. I am so thankful for the beauty of this state-- veritable eye candy for a photographer. Have always enjoyed photography but didn't become more serious about it until 2000. I love being a member of CMA and having access to the photos of so many gifted photographers.
