22 Beautiful Cactus Pictures

The cactus is a great photographic subject. Close-ups of their texture are really cool but cacti are also beautiful in scenic shots. They almost make you want to live in the desert…almost.

I LOVE Cactus being from Southern California. Great shots!

We caught this lone cactus when shooting a spectacular sunset at Gate’s Pass which is west of Tucson. Sunsets at the pass are simply breathtaking in color and scale, but this prickly friend poked our imaginations.

I just visited San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in the summer 2011. As a photographer I was blow away by the desert cacti. An art curator friend there introduced me to her favorite San Miguel photographer, Kate McKenna, who does extraordinary cacti and human form pieces. I had the pleasure of visiting her studio. Here’s her website:
Seeing them digitally on website doesn’t do them justice in the real. Extraordinary work.
