Saguaro at Sunset

Tucson at sunset with a silhouette of the saguaro cactus and a colorful sky in the background as the day turns to nigh.  This colorful image was taken as the sun was setting in the Saguaro National Park being from Texas I thought I had seen plenty of catus, but no I haven't. Every inch of this place has something that will stick or sting you if your not very careful and I speak from experience, but I love the look of the Saguaro as the sun began to set. It was amazing to see rows and row of these masses catus most being between 20 to 30 ft ft high, but they can grow to be 70 ft high. The Saguaro cactus is a protected species so this allows them to thrive very well in this hostile and very dry desert landscape. Some species of the saguaro catus can live to be 150 years. Many birds use the holes created by the woodpecker to make their nest to raise their young. The fruit of the tree has been used to make a fermented drink made from the bright red fruit to summon rains by theO'odham tribes. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
