Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

The spherical cactus in Colorado's Sange de Cristo mountains shows off complexity and order of even plant-scale landscapes.

While it may surprise you, I did not actually artificially desaturate the background to the cactus; the plant was growing on top of an unusual bed of purely gray lichen. Which begs the age old question of art, life, and imitation.
