This photo was taken in my kitchen. It's a photo of a cactus bloom. I've had this cactus for years and this is the first time it's bloomed. I have no idea what kind of cactus this might be. The bloom closes in the evening and opens again in the morning. The actual size of this flower is about " across. For a little perspective, click here.

This was shot with a 180mm Macro Lens mounted on a 2x Extender and a Canon EOS 1Ds. The depth of field with this setup is very, very shallow so I shot at a setting of f32 to maximize the area in sharp focus.

This is my other cactus. It's also in my kitchen. It's kind of outgrown it's pot and I've wanted to transplant it for a while - but I can't figure out how to handle it out without getting impaled on those spikes - each of which is about 1" long.

The view from "Inspiration Point" overlooking Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park. This vista is one mile into the Cascade Trail Hike if you take the boat across Jenny Lake from the East Boat Dock to the West Boat Dock. If you hike from the boat dock, add another 2.4 miles. The Cascade Canyon hike is 9 miles round trip from the West Boat dock. The trail starts above  7000 feet in elevation and gains about 1050 feet total.
