136 - The Amazing Outdoors

Nature is just enough; but men and women must comprehend and accept her suggestions. Antoinette Brown Blackwell

This sky was exactly as its shown, all I had to do was run around until I found the century plant.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds, or century plants. Which ever you prefer. Beautiful.

And the crowd goes Ooooooo.... Aaaahhh.... This gets a big WOW from me :-)

I absolutely love when you find rhythm (or it finds you). This is stunning.

There's enough good stuff going on here to keep your eye and mind happy for a long while, yet the photo has a nice simplicity. I think I'm beginning to understand better the "Mike style" :-)

Just to nit-pick, I think the lower left is a little vacant, and you could perhaps add a touch of vignetting there. I also wish I could see a bit more sand beach to help make the transition between grass and sea, but then I do really like the low perspective as it causes the century plant's stalks to "rise up" above the grass and be superimposed over the water (it helps to define the plant better, visually).

Anyway, I like this one very much, Mike. Very, very nice!
