1000 Palms

     Visited 1000 Palms, Shields Date Gardens, and saw "Iron Lady" - so, a mixture of fun here in Desert Hot Springs (Palm Springs, California) today. Bonnie's Challenge of an abstract... I am unable to capture the layers since I am not at my own computer. But, hope you enjoy nonetheless. Have been taking photos as much as possible. Will have lots to work with.
     I apologize to those in the challenge because I have not been able to comment; will do so when I return home. Thanks for your understanding.

this is a fascinating photo Karen and so delighted you are having a wonderful break from that "white stuff". Thanks for joining in on the texture giveaway, and be sure to check back in on March 15th when I announce the winner. Safe travels and look forward to all of you post trip photos

Ooooh - I like this Karen. You have given the cactus an edgy, ominous (carnivorous?) feel. Thank you for sharing with PAF. We've had days of snow - and there you are photographing cactii - enjoy!!

Karen, I like the linear effect of the palm fronds. Spectacular colors too.

It's filled with all those natural layers - we forget about using those in our constant exploration of digi art! Great image - glad to hear you're having a good time.
