Saguaro skeleton ~

Tucson is surrounded by magnificent, protected park lands. Recently I took a drive through Saguaro National Park East to see if I could photograph some cacti during a rainstorm. Although cloudy and overcast, the sky didn't deliver rain. Here is a beautiful saguaro skeleton. 


  1. I love the saguaro skeletons. Often they are the most interesting thing going on in the desert. I especially love when they fall over and merge with the surrounding vegetation. It is so unusual I could look at them for hours. And sometimes I do.

  2. Unfamiliar with the desert, I don't recall seeing these before, or, at least, know what I was looking at...beautifully composed photo.
