Wow, I can leave another comment here. OK, so if I were to take the bottom half, roughly speaking, not that I should, but when I look at all that detail I know that is the real desert, Saguaro aside. That is the desert I love so much, the diversity of plants, the dry, dead looking shrubs which are likely very much alive, and even those rocks that have been carried there or exposed by water, which means all this happened over a really lonnnnnnnnnnnnng time, because rainfall or running water is so rare. I can feel something of the ages of earth in a photo like this. And of course the Saguaro makes it stand out immediately. So yeah, I think you “done real good”, exceptional, like that. If that is not some sort of an award wining nature photo, I don’t know what would be.

This is a very poetic paragraph. Thank you for sharing your love for the desert! I never knew I could love it there either but I definitely did. Thank you for saying such nice things about this image. I really appreciate it!! 😀
