This is beauty in the Sonora Desert in Tucson Arizona; a trunk of a deal Saguaro Cactus. These ageless plants tend to be majestic even in death. It is said that it takes up to 75 years before a Saguaro Cactus can grow it’s first arm. I shot this image with the Panasonic GH2 and the Panasonic Lumix 100-300mm Super-Telephoto lens. All my images are captured using the Micro Four Thirds format which I love and have been investing in since 2008. I’m not limited to any brand or system but this format has served me well both in size, and functionality. Also, I’ve been posting regularly to this blog now and will continue to do so!
The Sonoran Desert is the most beautiful desert in the Southwest in my opinion. It’s quiet and thought provoking. Not to mention it has some of the most exotic succulents and cactus species. All is peaceful in Southern Arizona.
Just outside of Phoenix by Apache Junction on the way to Globe, Arizona. Traveling to Arizona several times a year, I usually stop to grab saguaro landscapes. The Sonora Desert it one of the most beautiful places on the planet!
