Another little desert beauty: Ditaxis lanceolata. If you see a small plant with slender, lanceolate-shaped, hairy leaves, take a closer look. The flower is small and white and almost gets lost nestled in the fuzzy, white hairs. We usually find Ditaxis in the crevice of a rock or leaning next to a rock where it is slightly shaded. Just another beautiful and ephemeral desert flower…

We actually published a post of this picture of Ditaxis lanceolata back in 2016. But a few months ago, we printed this photograph through our fine art printer. Actually, we sent it to the printer a couple of times. The first print turned out way too yellow and dingy. So, we color corrected the image. The entire image is brighter and more accurately reflects the blueish light from the shadows. The second print was better, color-wise, but the paper wasn’t quite right. The third print on archival, cotton-based photography paper did the trick and now this image looks amazing!
