Seeing Deep into a Yucca

October 09, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

One Saturday morning a few weeks ago, I walked past Ed's giant Yucca Filamentosa and saw pictures. This yucca is a native of the south eastern U.S. and has made itself very much at home in our south facing back yard. I have photographed its impressive florescence in the past, but this morning I looked deep into the center and saw the sharp lines of the variegated leaves contrasting with the soft curls of the filaments. I saw the curls floating in layers around the spikes. Could I capture that? The light on that cloudy morning was perfect. Although I had other plans for that morning, I knew I would never see those pictures again. I would never have that light again. Although that yucca would still be there another day, that moment would not be. I went into the house, got my camera, lenses, tripod. Checked my battery and SD card and set up. The results are on my homepage slideshow. Did I get it?
