Bokeh Cholla

Spring in Joshua Tree, and the teddy bear cholla are fresh and green.

We walked slowly round the nature trail in the largest cholla patch, stepping carefully over the shed arm sections that would someday be the tall spiky cacti that loomed over the path. The bright sun reflected off the sterile fruit and the yellow-white spines. The purple spines of tall desert flowers nodded in the breeze, zigzagging in and out the reaching arms of the cholla.

It was a beautiful day in the desert.

Shallow depth of field seems to work well for this sort of photograph...

Did you use some sort of neutral density filter to help reduce the amount of light entering the camera?
