Century Plant--Close up by Sandra Irwin

October 2021 - Century Plant--Close up

About the Image(s)

This is a close up of a series of cracks and discolorations in a Century Plant (Agave Americana) taken with my Canon EOS Mark IV, Canon 50 mm Macro lens, ISO 100, 50 mm, f/5.0, 1/125 sec. The original is included because I thought it would help to understand what the main photo is. I took the original with my iphone just today, but there were more cracks and fissures in the plant in the month of January when I took the close up. These plants can stand as tall or taller than a small adult. They are located just outside the East entrance to the Huntington Library, San Marino, CA. I didn't do anything in post processing at all, as I thought it would be more interesting to see it "as was"!

interesting closeup. looking at the original, I couldn't tell where you got the closeup from. colors are of interest. Enhance a bit?   Posted: 10/12/2021 11:58:51
