As promised, here are some photos I took in Arizona while hiking up a mountain in the desert. Where I live in South Carolina, everything is emerald green. And plants grow like in the jungle. The desert was a stark contrast, and cactus are really cool, even more so when they’re blooming. I don’t know if I could live somewhere as sparse and dry, but it certainly was an amazing space to visit. Plus, my shutter finger was very happy. See?
So tell me: what type of landscape do you prefer: lush green or stark simplicity? Dramatic mountains or wide flat horizons?
