Saguaro National Park, Arizona

The plant to the left of the picture is a Saguaro cactus and is about 30 feet high. These plants live many years, and it is an amazing sight to see thousands of them on all sides.

The camera used was a Nikon E8700, and the picture was taken at f6.3 for 1/235 sec. The focal length setting of the lens was 35mm (in 35mm-equivalent).

  1. It's a great photo to work with and the two main features that stand out for me would be the cactus and the rock. You could crop into it to include the cactus and the rock which would then highlight the beautiful blue of the sky and the jagged edge leading to the rock. I would also have been tempted to use either a fisheye or wide lense from the left of the cactus making either the cactus or the rock more dominant. Many thanks for transporting me to the Saguaro National Park and good look with your future projects. Kind Regards, Paula.
