Desert Green - from Abstract Nature Photography series, by award-winning artists Ben and Raisa Gertsberg, aka BRG, who collaborate under the name It's a Beautiful World!
When you look at this nature inspired artwork the first thing you see is a close-up view of the long, narrow leaves forming the succulent plant's rosette. But then you can't help but follow the flowing motion and intricate patterns, and you find yourself calmed by earth tones of heather green, silver and yellow that make this piece relaxing and tranquil.
This botanical wonder is called Haleakala silversword or Ahinahina plant. It is a rare plant found only on the Maui and Hawaii islands, primarily in alpine deserts or bogs, and open forest.
