Saguaro Cactus

We have travel numerous time in the Sonoran desert in Arizona, and always enjoy camping in the area of the Saguaro cactus.  These majestic cactus take on an almost human form with their arms that extend off the main trunk of the cactus.  I have tried to photograph these cactus many times and feel I have not captured the true character of the subject.  Hopefully we can spend some more time there in the future and I can work with these great giants of the desert once more.

Mississippi Crossing

I have crossed the Mississippi River numerous times and always find it an exciting place to stop and spend a few days to photograph.  This bridge is located at the river crossing between the towns of Vidalia, La. and Natchez. Ms., and straddles the state line.  I made this image with a Canon 5D11 at around 9 p.m.  I was on the western side of the river in the town a Vidalia and found a nice public walk way that goes down under the bridge.  On the other side of the river is the old historic beautiful town of Natchez.  It is fill with old civil war era homes and plenty of history to explore.  The Mississippi River is a fascinating place to just sit and watch the barges go up and down the river.
