This week’s MotD theme: It’s Not Easy Being Green
Fine art photographer, Teri Dashfield, Images by TDashfield, captured this beautiful image of a golden barrel cactus cluster at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, AZ. Read more about her trip to the garden via her blog post.
About her photography, she states:
As a photographer I am constantly striving to improve my skills in order to capture the amazing things I see in a way that truly showcases them. But sometimes I do like to experiment with an image thus creating a brand new photographic creature.
In the pursuit of these images I have been rained on, gotten muddy, been cold, got sunburned and have been to some great places and seen wonderful things. I want to not just share an image with you but to also convey the feeling that that moment captured.
Inspiration for Today
Teri’s cacti demonstrate how we may sometimes put prickly thorns around our beautiful hearts with the intention of protecting ourselves. However in the end, the thorns prevent anyone coming too close for fear of being hurt. What thorns did we erect around our hearts? Which ones can we release?
