Curves of Agave, Century Plant. Chiaroscuro composition with light and dark areas.

The Curves of Agave

I like the leaves of agave plants any day at any time, but here, it really caught my eye how the plant was brightly lit creating areas of light and shadow further highlighting the strong curves of the leaves.

Agave is a perennial plant that is special in that it blooms only once and then it dies. Some agave species are known as century plants because it takes them a long time (100 years) to bloom.
