About This Image

A bloom from the prickly pear cactus. I really liked how the light brought out the texture of the petals and the shadows from the sharp spines. The side light came from the late afternoon sun.

Thank you, Alandra, for your kind feedback. I liked the sidelighting that showed up the texture of the petals.
