Theme Day: Photo of the Year 2011


This year I had a very hard time choosing my photo of the year.  I had so many that I liked very much.  In the end I chose the one that was my favorite.  I think the light was perfect on the subject and the colors just pop on the photo.  I posted this one last April when all the cactus were in bloom.
