Those are Century Plants, American Aloe. The flower stem gets very large in mature plants, and the inner core can be used as tinder for flint & steel fire lighting.Regards, Keith.A Woodsrunner's Diary.http://woodsrunnersdiary.blogspot.com/
They are lovely in B&W but I really love the sight of them against a turquoise sea.
I'm not a big fan of these plants - BUT ... you've made them look spectacular!!!
I wondered if they were a variety of aloe-vera. Keith confirms it.
Their shapes are great against the sea and the sky. Lovely photo.
I like this shot Mark and the way the cactus seem to stand out differently in B&W. Great shot.
I don´t like cactus but you have captured them so the picture is interesting and has a nice depth.
great shot. And what a gorgeous beach. :)
Nicely done. I like the contrast.
Thanks for the correct name Keith. Happy New year to you.
Your cactus plants are so pretty. Many times I do not find them to be very attractive, but in this capture they are absolutely lovely. genie
