Agave No.1, NSW 2009

Agave No.1, NSW, Australia 2009


The interplay of light and shadow on the leaves caught my eye. I visualised the image as a strong graphic design, but I'm not sure that I succeeded in executing the vision well.

As the title suggests, this is the first of a number of similar images I made of these plants. Other images may appear shortly.
