(aka prickly pear cactus)

A few keepers from a recent trip to Torrey Pines State Park near San Diego. Had to go off trail and suffer the withering scorn of the park docent to get the cactus shot! The resulting image was worth the embarrassment (mostly felt by the long-suffering girlfriend).

I have to stop laughing at Bob's comment to say seriously wonderful photos! I love the classic tree image, and all of these show the sharp angular tough nature of the place. thanks!

Great job finding beautiful colors and textures! I really love the tree shot. Looks like you gotta be pretty careful when taking photos in the desert!
