ten minutes

The sky outside was doing interesting things with all the clouds and rain around, so I went out to try to catch the changing light before sunset.

I was trying to capture the sun behind this tree, and also caught the chimney and the cactus. Yes, this cactus has taken root in the space between roof and chimney. It's not visible from the road, or from anywhere on the property next door. In fact the only place it can be seen from is the front-side window of our house. It looks like it's hiding from the world.

Ten minutes later, the light was very different. But the cactus is still there.

A few minutes more and the sky was flaming.

And this happens every night. Amazing.

Oh i love that cactus! He looks quite sheepish, peeking out with his big goofy ears as if he knows he really shouldn't be there. Great pics claire. jx
