Agave Bloom with Surreal Sky

Here is a photo of the blooms on the center stalk of the Blue Agave plant.

The cluster of blooms is taken against a sky filled with fluffy clouds.

I like the surreal feel of this image.

I used my kelvin temperature on my Nikon D90 to obtain this effect where the sky is greenish instead of blue. And, I took this photo near sunset so the lighting was interesting and worked well with the kelvin temperature of about 3500.

Check out our travel photos of going up and down the largest pyramid at Chichen Itza at Viva la Voyage!
