Fire Bear by ColinHSillerud Fire Bear by ColinHSillerud
After being attacked all day by this desert, it nicely opened up into a wonderful display of light permeating the needles of Teddy Bear Cholla.

Dear Deviant-friend!!!
I try to make a new group, which contains ONLY REALLY GOOD ART, and to the favourites of the group I choosed your works also. I collect every kind of Art without restrictions. Different styles, different ages, different messages...
Please look the favourites of the Group, ( reallyartists.deviantart.com/f… ) and if you like the style, step into the group!!! It don't want to be a big group, only a little place, where you can feel well...
Don't forget to watch the group !!!

While in the waiting room at a doctor's office a couple of days ago, your mother walked in with this shot printed on canvas. It is gorgeous! Thank your mom for pointing me to your work here on DA. :clap:

Wow, the Teddy Bear Cholla's look so nice and peaceful, like they couldn't harm anybody. Which seems to be exactly the opposite of what they really are (I saw the picture in your blog, ouch). Anyway, the photo is absolutely awesome :D

This photo is absolutely stunning. The way the sun shines through the white needles of the cactus making them glow orange, the colour of the sky, the pink tones of the cacti in the backdrop... This is easily one of the most impressive photographs I have seen in a long time.
