How strange!? I watched a BBC documentary about Mexico's mountains last night.

I like the contrast between the soft plant and the gravel surrounding it.

The brown and homogeneous background, allows the plant to be in full prominence.
Perfect framing and composition.

the uniform beige gravel makes a great background, but also suggests an artificial environment such as an arboretum. But the slight brown edges also imply a lack of conscientious watering
