Strange Beauty

fullsizerenderOne morning as I pulled out of the driveway, I spotted an event of stunning beauty. Bathed in early morning sunlight, glowing white and golden and deep green, were the most beautiful cactus flowers. The buds had been swelling for the last several days, and I drove slowly by, gazing at their singular beauty. At the end of the day, as I drove by, I noticed they were already fading, the petals wilting in the warm afternoon air.
The next year, when I spotted the buds again, I determined to capture them. And I did.
