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.

Oden's Dock, Hatteras, NC. Entrance to Pamlico Sound at sunset. Taken earlier this year.

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.
