This is the "Classic" cactus...the ones which is almost archetypal in everyone's mind even down to the graphic artists and cartoonist..and the back lighting works for you...

Now these look very familiar to me! They are quite similar to our Sagguaros. I like the vertical composition wirh the mountains behind the big cactus.

A very beautiful shot, definitely not uncommon, but still holds its own! The POV is again not very different, but something makes this shot stand out...A classic, yes it is!
Respect, my friend James!

All I have to do is look at cacti and I can get pricked.LOL.
I would hate to go near one of these giants.
This is wonderful,well composed and exposed.
The details are sharp with lovely colour.
I still say it would be easier to ask you where you haven't been ,that list would be shorter than where you have been.

These are giant cacti, James.
The picture also shows us the habitat in which they grow in Argentina. The depth of view is great in this image.
TFS and regards.

Wonderful cactus. This is a furrier looking version of the saguaro.
The landscape reminds me a lot of Arizona.
Well composed photo. Great details and perfect lighting!

alla tua galleria si aggiungono continuamente bellissime immagini dei luoghi più disparati della Terra sempre colti con grande capacità tecnica, ma soprattutto cogliendo l'essenza di questi luoghi che visiti; ottimi POV e DOF, molto buona la nitidezza, bellissimi i colori.

A great well-scanned, well composed shot of a massive Cardon cactus growing in its natural habitat. We saw smaller version of these in the Lanzarote cactus gardens.
