I like this picture with the harsh thorns in the foreground framing the view of the mountain.
What a beautiful nature made frame! This is stunning!
Great name for a mountain, Louis Lamour, wrote a couple of great stories centred on that area. Who would have thought of Cholla as a frame for a photo, beautiful.
I don't think I'd want to accidently walk into that! Great photo for this theme. I liked the way you framed your shot.
Great framing indeed, those thorns are glowing. Beautiful shot.
Ouch!! Beautiful shot and great framing. I get tired just thinking about all the hiking you do!!
The cactus does make a lovely frame for the mountains.
Enlarged it is even better
Nice shot the way the cactus frames the mountains. Quite a switch from the snowy mountains to the warm desert!
love the 'frame' too! This is such a different landscape (to me)...would love to hike there too!
This plant is gorgeous! I've never seen anything like it before and as Tammy said, the perfect frame for that majestic mountain.
What do you think?
