Opposites – Weekly Photo Challenge

IMG_2086I never did fathom the reason for this contrasting sunset over the River Saone at Gray

DSCF6441These delicate, fragrant blooms suddenly emerged this week …

DSCF6438… from possibly the sturdiest, most hostile cactus I’ve ever seen.

The Weekly Photo Challenge invited photographs showing contrasts – dark and light, soft and hard, big or small.  Click on the link to see others.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    The sunset is really cool – but the cactus flower has that amazing wow factor – almost like chiffon in the flower and to contrast with the cactus spikes – great idea for the wpc!


  2. Fantastic – the flower is gorgeous, Sandra.

  9. The cactus flower is beautiful. Interesting the way it develops from such a harsh plant.

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
