I enjoyed sunset here so, I knew the sunrise would be good.

My Spotlighted Images
5 stars. This is a stellar cactus-sunrise shot. I love the way the light has picked out the details of the arms of the plants. Perhaps a hallelujah chorus !! ;-)

Hi Steve - This is completely superb! Don't you just love what happens when the light hits the bristles? Amd you, my friend, have attacked this scene magnificently! The combination of sunrise pink and on some and pure white light on others makes fopr a wonderful and compelling scene that I could look at all day - in fact I think I will! Beautiful job, as always Steve!!

These cactus have a curious and highly graphical shape and offer very peculiar textures while the warm tonalities of the sunrise create a wonderful intriguing atmosphere.
A very good work,
