Yuccas a another type of plant that are notoriously difficult to get a good shot of. I usually get a picture of an over-exposed flower stalk sticking right out of the ground. I think this shot came out just a bit better than my usual attempts.
Even during the winter, you got to get out a little bit. When cabin fever became too much for me and spit me out of the house, I ended up in Kolob Canyon and took this shot. I'd say it was worth it to get out.
