Beautifully composed, Richard. Seems like there’s a breeze blowing through the shrubbery - and the cool tones enhance the feel of the scene.


Excellent near/far landscape composition and image. I especially like the presence of the little prickly pear; it grabs my attention in a positive way. Also enjoying the lushness of the desert displayed nicely here.
