Saquaro Cactus Desert Beauty BW

Saquaro Cactus Desert Beauty BW - Tucson Arizona is home to the nation's largest cacti the saquaro. We were in route to the Saquaro National Park when we stopped to capture these cactus along the roadside which looked like sentinels to the desert with a nice blue sky with clouds and some mountains in the distance made a nice landscape. The saquaro are a landmark to the area around Tucson and Phoenix area as you will not see them just in any desert scenery. We decide to do a black and white as we like it as well. These iconic cacti are not the only cactus in the area it is pretty much a desert and that is pretty much what grows in the area including many other succulents and they all seem to stick or sting you as I found out. It was a pretty nature landscape view with these saquaro and mountains with a nice sky so we thought this might make scenic capture. The saguaro grow taller than any other cactus and it take 50 to 75 years just to grow an arm so they are long lived cacti with many over 200 years plus and the largest succulent. The saquaro is native to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, the Mexican state of Sonora, and in some areas of California. The saquaro is protected species. In this you see one tall saquaro with mulitiple arms I expect it been around a while. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.

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.
