I took this image on the back patio of my house in Saudi Arabia. When I had finished, I marveled that I had clumps of cactus needles sticking in my hands in three places. They enter very slyly.
beautifully framed .. watch out so you do not hurt you:)

I was looking at my old winter photo and saw your comment there.
I looked at your San Antonio blog and traveler`s diary and saw also there, how versatile person you are.
Your photos are such art pieces .
Greetings from white Finland!

@LeenaM: Thanks so much, Leena.
Photographer suffers... :)
But it worth the "pain". This is a fabulous image. The light is superb. Including the leaves has created a strong contrast with the cactus. Very well done Michael!
