Does anyone know any good online resources for how to do Desert Scenery.. or for that matter does anyone have any tips, guides or infomation on the subject themselves?

Found lots on forrests and such but little or nothing on Deserts.

Thanks in advance

GandyDancer,

Thank you for the info sir. I'll try and get my hands on some of those. I did see the article in MR on saguaro cactus; it was interesting, I had happened upon it before on the web site of the author of that article.

Thanks again for info.

Peace.

Coyote
