This photo is called “Sun Set Cactus Backlit”. This is taken by the lake park near my mom’s house. The area I live in is Texas near Austin, and so even the lake area have drought resistant cactus everywhere. The silhouetted light of the thorns in the dusk evening shadow really struck me as interesting in this image. A great deal of the things we pass by, and tune out of our attention are really interesting if we take a close look at them. This seemed to be a prime example. Cactus seems barren and desolate because it has to survive drought and harsh sun. Yet that also makes it an example of strength and survival under pressure.
