Spirit of the Wind ….again

I’ve posted a photo of Alan Houser’s Spirit of the Wind sculpture once before, but thought I’d post one more that I took last weekend. You can see that the saguaro cactus has blooms on it’s top and arms and in front of it, the ocotillo is blooming with it’s bright red spays. Then if you look behind the sculpture you will see a hint of red from the tops of the agave blooms that are scattered behind. There are even some pretty yellow wildflowers surrounding the base. There is quite a lot to see in on little photo.

Very cleverly placed piece of art

Yes, this one begs to be enlarged. I really like the placement of the sculpture amid the cacti and stone.

Love the sculpture and everything around it! This is a wonderful shot and I will enlarge it now to have a better view of all the great succulent details.

The right side of the image is hidden on the post, you really have to enlarge it, it's gorgeous!

What a talented man he was! And, how good of you to photograph this sculpture for us to see!!

I've reposted the photo in the normal large size so you could see the saguaro and Ocotillo. I didn't realize that the new blogger "extra-large" size would crop the photo.

This is a great placement for the sculpture.

Such a pretty scene.
I love the flower with the butterfly from yesterday too.

I've got wifi here but it's slow.
