It is one of the few without any thorns and perhaps, because of this, my little camera had trouble focusing. It also had problems with deciding the colour range, and as a result the colour was presented as less earthy and more of an ethereal blue.Ethereal Agave Azul (Blue Agave) in Zihuatanejo, MexicoEthereal Agave Azul (Blue Agave) in Zihuatanejo, MexicoThe most delicate of all, like the skirts of silken evening gowns swirling across the dance floor.Ethereal Agave Azul (Blue Agave) in Zihuatanejo, MexicoMore of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Delicate Colours.
