Patti has had this cactus for 30 years. In the past 18 years, we have seen it bloom only 3 times. It occurs at night and in the morning it's gone. One of four flowers produced by our night blooming cereus - so beautiful.

With the tomorrow's "Super Moon" coming up, here's one I took awhile back. Not a super moon. Just a full moon.

More like a painting than a photo; my instant reaction was to think of van Gogh's The Cafe Terrace with the heavy emphasis on yellows, but I quickly realized that was way off given the time element. He portrays artificial light at night and this is natural light distorted at mid-day. Then I thought of David Hockney. I had a poster reproduction by him many years ago that combined photographic realism with color saturation. Definitely, more like that Hockney, but better.

At maximum color saturation this picture of a Russian landscape has an impressionistic color scheme.

These are amazing, Bill! If only I had a quality camera I'd take more. But this is so pure! Hats off to you again.

The catcus blooming is National Geographic worthy.
