Saguaro and the Moon

Every picture has a story, and this one does because it's actually two pictures. I was staying at my daughter's house in Tucson for a couple days and decided to go shoot a few pic's at nearby Saguaro National Park, East Division. No one wanted to go with me first thing in the morning, so I loaded up the Jeep to head out by myself while they all slept. And I couldn't find my tripod. So, while I could have shot this picture with a tripod, a long exposure and a small aperture (if I had my tripod), I didn't. I shot two pictures, refocusing in between, then used a digital image editor to create the image you see. Imaged in August 2009.

In central Arizona, they grow in people's
front yards, and folks decorate them to look
like blinking Christmas trees.

Thanks for looking and commenting, Larry. My oldest daughter is assigned in Tucson (USAF, but currently she's deployed to Iraq), so I should be getting down there on occasion. In fact, was just there passing through last week on my return from a trip to visit my folks in San Diego. Didn't get any pic's of Saguaros, however. --mark d.
