The Kracken Wakes.
One of my favorite subjects is the Agave or Century plant. In just a shot period of time this species can grow a stalk 40 feet high and ten inches in diameter. It flowers, seeds and then the whole plant dies.

I never get tired of poppies. This one was taken several years ago and once again, a heavy mixture of super-saturated colour and texture makes this image so much more than a straight photograph.
