Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
As this image scrolled up on my screen, I was thinking: Wow, silk flowers have certainly evolved! They are truly beautiful and the lighting brings out so many special qualities.
Gosh...this has to be one of the prettiest flowers I have seen. I know there are some even prettier but not around here.
I am happy to know several people like that: prickles all around and very beautiful, silk inside.
Wow! I've never seen one quite so close up before. It's beautiful=)
One of the things that amazed me when we first moved to Arizona was the way the desert bloomed. I mean, whoever heard of cactus flowers?These are gorgeous; reminds me of a silk nightie someone wore once!
Not one, but two beauties! It is so detailed and exquisite!
The subtlety of the two shades of lavender is exquisite.
So soft, for something seemingly so prickly.
This is special, Sharon. As a guy from the Northeast, I am still surprised when I see pictures of flowering cacti. Who knew?
That is simply amazing!
So beautiful. They almost look fake.
Sharon, it does look like silk. It shines and reflects. Perfect!
They do look like silk, beautiful color and capture!
I always think it is magical when my cacti (Which grow inside here) bloom. Great use of your lens.
gorgeous flowers and yes they are clearly silky
This image is truly spectacular. the light is just right and brings out the soft colours. Just wonderful.Thanks for your kind words on Avignon in Photos, much appreciated.
