Beautiful composition. Wish there'd been a bit more blue mixed in the sky. But I guess that would be very harsh. :)

I love that cactus.... We never seem to be in CA when the cactus' are blooming. It's a nice expression of beauty amongst the harshest environments.

A rose amongst thorns! For flora, this certainly is a harsh environment.

Even though my rationale says "harsh", the shot says "pretty"! *smile*

very nice composition. colored flowers jump out of the screen from colorless/bald hills in the background. wish those hills were a bit lighted though.

good submission, I like the flowering cactus in the foreground because it adds some texture and color
