Photo Challenge; Motion

Photo Challenge; Motion

This week, share your photographs that have captured motion, and tell us the stories behind the images.


Desert Snow
Stenocereus thurberi

Snow in the still desert night; the moon and the stars hidden by heavy clouds. It is incredibly dark.
Large flakes falling in slow motion nestle in, and collect on the spines of an old Organ Pipe Cactus.
The light from my flash reflects back brightly from the gently falling snow.

  1. Thank you for linking my post 🙂

    That photo is so beautiful! A very surreal image as snow is familiar to me while cacti are most definitely not. Paired together, they make quite the juxtaposition.

    1. High desert snow is pretty common – New Mexico winters see snow frequently. This particular shot I took when I lived in Tucson. Sonora desert snow though, is rare.
      Good to see you.
