North American Monsoon - markhumpage
The protected giant saguaro cactus captured in the Saguaro National Park just outside of Tucson. The cacti are an amazing spectacle to see in their natural habitat. They are also huge, growing beyond 40ft tall and a great subject matter to fill a frame. Whilst pursuing a monsoon storm we found ourselves amidst the cacti and National Park. This particular frame had so many varieties of cacti and with Al in the frame I couldn't have wrote a better script.
