Photo: Sunset Agave Cactus Bloom

Here is a photo of the blue agave cactus bloom during a brilliant sunset.

I took this image with a kelvin temperature of around 7000 and while on a tall ladder.

This is the end of my photo series of the blue agave plant. The plant and 20 foot center stalk have not yet fallen over yet, but will do so any day. It leans further and further each night when I get home from work.

I am glad I documented its life through these photos. I hope you enjoyed them

Yes, I'm glad you took the time to document this too. and this is a perfect 'that's all, folks' image for the blue agave.

I love the color of the sky. And the silhouette is gorgeous too. I have enjoyed this series.

This has been a very creative series, all about one dying plant. I look forward to the growth of the agave pups that this plant has left behind.
