During my photo workshops a few weeks ago I was reminded just how rich and colorful the desert looks during a rain storm. So yesterday morning as I heard the rain pouring down – I couldn’t wait to get out with my camera. I had my eye on a stunning Graham’s Nipple Cactus bloom that I spotted while running the day before, but evidently they don’t open on cloudy days. So I had to “settle” for this Hedgehog cactus.
I find it fascinating that such a sharp, potentially painful plant can produce such a beautiful bloom!
Speaking of my workshop – as much fun as I had hosting them, I think the follow up emails and photo attachments from the participants may have been even more rewarding!
Most participants don’t have websites that I’m aware of, but a couple do and I would like to share them here.
First is Samatha – on this website of Samatha’s photos she writes about the workshop, some of the things we talked about and places we visited during the second weekend – it was a fun to relive the weekend through her images.
Greg Lato posted a couple photos of our group during the first weekend on his photo blog. And be sure to check out his photo from Anza-Borrego. It is fun to see the different interpretations of the the same area.
I have more photo tours coming up including one where we will be up close to grizzly bears all day!
