31st January 2011

This image belongs to yesterday when I didn’t get around to choosing an image for the day.   Lots of other things on the ‘to do’ list.

I’m not a fan of cacti, but since the RBG (Royal Botanic Gardens) has a large arid garden as part of their plant collection and it was near the garden’s entrance I used every visit, its inevitable that I took the time to photograph some of its many specimens.

Euphorbia ingens variegata ????

I was disappointed in this image as it looks too ‘flat’.   I actually tried to edit it into a better photo late last night, but my photo editing skills are minimal and no matter how much light and life I tried to inject into the image, it remains dead (to me) and two-dimensional.

Still, I’m sure there are some cacti & succulents lovers out there who might enjoy the view. Further down 2011 I took some more interesting images of both cacti and succulents with my Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens which turned out much better, but they will come further down my scrolling through my photo library archives.
