Phoenix (AZ) - AZ Highways Workshop at the Gardens

Day 1 with the Arizona Highways Photography Workshop with Jeff Kida was held at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens.  Our focus for the workshop was macro photography, up close and personal with the Garden.  This light is hitting the cactus from the side, emphasizing the spikes with shadows.

For some of the close-ups I have included a view of the entire plant.
 The side lighting allowed the shadows to darken portion and serve as a background for other leaves.

This was back lit and the sharp tack edges seemed to glow.

 I liked the back lighting that gave the outline of the cactus a halo.
 Clouds were rolling in.  This is looking east, and the sun was setting in the west, highlighting the cacti.

 Our Dale Chihuly pride and joy with a back ground of approaching storm.
