Agave Fields, Sisal Hacienda

Temperature; +27C Wind; 0.5 m/sec Rain; None

THINGS THAT WENT WRONG;

a. Had to go in to bushes to make this shot, agave spike poked the hole in my back
b. Stepped over the dried snake skin, almost had heart attack
c. Had to catch up with moving wagon which was already 1 km away
d. Run in to acacia tree with hanging wasp hive, consequences were astounding
e. Found myself in the wrong wagon after 1 km marathon...

Nikon D300
1/2000s f/7.1 at 16.0mm iso500 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

You know, this gets more like a National Lampoons Vacation with every image....whatever else can happen I wonder?

Hello amigo. One has to love these photos which are an integral part of an interesting story. Looking at the lay of the land, I would say that your run in with these prickly plants could have surely been much worse. Had you been poked a little lower, you might be singing a tune with quite a higher pitch, LOL. But even though this place gave you quite a bit of "Tsouris" (uh oh.... another yiddish word), you managed to glean quite a lovely well exposed scene, nicely composed and colorful indeed. Zy gezundt amigo, Michael.
