Today I'm posting a common figure in southern Arizona the Saguaro Cactus, it is a impressive and massive catus.. Did you know it takes around 75 five years for a Saguaro to start growing "arms".. Imagine how old this one is.. You guys have a great weekend

Hello Everton,

Nice picture of this big cactus. Good sharpness. Good composition, I wonder what would be the picture if the cactus was not in the center. Beautiful light and colours.

Olá Everton.
Parece ser grande mesmo esse cactos!
Gostei muito dessa interessante perspectiva (de baixo para cima), realçando a composição.
Destaco também a excelente profundidade de campo!

Awesome shot, brother!
Very sharp and detailed!

Hello Everton

A very good capture of this huge cactus.
It must be very old,The colours are natural and well saturated.
I really like the background.I can imagine a coyote and roadrunner running around in there.
