Snowy Cactus


On my short and I mean short walk (it was so cold) to capture some snow shots, I came across this cactus with a little snow still on it. I was careful not to get too close.

I remember one time thinking it would be okay if I just very carefully lightly touched a cactus needle. Wrong!

Very pretty, Randy.

Lowell said...

Looks quite beautiful if a bit dangerous! Nice shot, Randy!

Tanya said...

it's such a contrast to see snow on a cactus!

Kate said...

Looks a bit delicate and should NOT be covered by snow. Guess I'll have to start checking SF's temperatures.

Sharon said...

There is something striking about a cactus with snow on it. Nice shot.

VP said...

Very nice picture, I likethe idea of the snow...

A sticky situation, taking a cold walk to get a pic of snow on a cholla! Made for a fine photo!

I love the juxtaposition of cactus and snow...wonderful! Now stay in from the cold and have a warm toddy!

Lúcia said...

That's a strange combination! I always think about cactus unnder warm temperatures. ;-)

Very pretty, all "looky" no "touchy".

What's this? You don't like the cold either? A short walk because of the cold? I like the cholla and long for the desert but it can be bitterly cold there too.

Good idea not to get too close, even though it looks very pretty.

Now those are some serious prickles Randy and I definitely agree with John Ruskins views on weather, it's all good!

That is beautiful! I just love seeing snow on cacti. I don't know why, but it has always been one of my favorite things.

Traveling Hawk said...

it'a a nice contrast between the golden flowers, cactus stem and the snow.

Fantastic! I have a passion for cacti but never seen any on a snowy environment.
