Desert Close-ups

When you're in the desert, it's tempting to take landscape photos. The mountains, buttes, and canyons create dramatic topography; saguaros grow perpendicular to the ground, but with asymmetrical arms; the clouds cast shadows on distant hills. Yet, desert details are also dramatic, often pairing spines with flowers and emphasizing a pronounced geometry. Here are some desert close-ups that I've collected. Enjoy!
