Wall of Thorns

Jolla, saguaro and one very large ocotillo form an imposing barrier.

I’ve always thought that the ocotillo is one of the most visually interesting plants in the Sonoran Desert, yet it’s always a challenge for me to actually put together a pleasing composition that features one. I’m not sure that I’ve accomplished that with this shot, but I hope you like it.

  1. Very nice shot. However, I would crop a slight amount from the bottom to eliminate the cholla that are just sticking up beyond the edge in front of the ocotillo.
