Hi MD & Rishini,

Thanks a lot for your comments. Yep, even I like this golden colour that given by the hard sunlight.

@MD
Yes, this is one of the healthiest plants that I saw in the area. True, there’s no way that this bush can store water within itself unless having strong roots to find the water way beneath this hard surface.

ya,i'm really surprised to see this plant survive in such conditions.need to learn a lot from it :-)
i dont think its roots would go so deep.but then,how else would it retain its life?God knows!!

I like the contrast of the chaotic forground in a calm background...let me guess..you gave a touch of contrast and sharpness in this pic right? It has highlighted the thorny and pricky feel of the bush :-)

@MD
Thanks for the comment.

Yes, there should be water in a reachable distance. Stay tuned you might find the source of it :D

@Patali
Thanks for the comment.

Yep, you are correct. Original shot got enough contrast and details on it, but I tweaked a bit get more highlight for my liking. Looks like you are a fan of high contrast and sharpness like me, I saw it in your recent pic’s too =D

Wow.. nice warm colors! Prolly this plant has a lot of thorns just like a cactus. Thorns help them to absorb water from air.
