The stem of this yucca cactus in my neighbor's garden in Saudi Arabia is more than 3 meters high. It seems to have doubled in height in the last two weeks.
nice shot , interesting composition .

@Saeed: Thank you, Saeed.
interesting angle. I think this is the time of year for everything to just shoot up and grow, grow, grow. Great shot.

@Marion: Thank you, Marion.
Wow, this is so cool! Great angle.
20 May 2008 6:08am
@e.: Thank you, e.
Wonderful angle and perspective! I find it such a shame that after the stem blooms the plant then slowly dies...

I would say it's an Agave; an interesting and unusual shot, very graphic - I like it!

@MadScientist: Many thanks, MS. You could be right on the name. The owner called it a Yucca but wasn't sure. I checked on google for images of Yuccas and they looked like this. Again, I'm no expert.

Cool composition and angle! To tell you the truth i've never seen a cactus which was higher than 1m.... >.<"

@Koushiro~光子郎: Many thanks, Koushiro.
Silhouetted so perfectly in this shot; I like the angle you've used also. Almost gives a surreal impression of shattered glass along the spikey edge.

@Japanalia: I agree. Thank you, Gabriela.
Very good. The hard, sharp, leaves of the yucca against a sweet sky with tonalities going smoothly from almost white to deep blue.
