    ooh never seen one with those colour leaves – gorgeous (assuming of course it is still alive!!)

      Low sun, so I think the colour is distorted. Sunny day for you?

        It is now . . . . . earlier we needed full waterproofs to go out but now beautiful blue, sunshine and a little bit of wind 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          Enjoy your walking 🙂

      2. Our neighbour has these growing all along the fence and they are all a coppery colour like this. They add interest in sunrise/sunset photos. 🙂

          I’m interested in getting some aloes and agaves to line the car park area at the back of my garden. Maybe in containers.

        2. Containers are a good idea. I used to have an agave in a garden bed. It grew enormous and took over, then got so heavy it fell over and broke off at ground level. That was the end of that!

    Reminds me of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Without the cat, of course. 🙂 🙂 Happy Saturday, Jude!

      Oh, there is a cat. A big fat ginger cat, but not in this picture 🙂 It is a very damp Saturday here Jo!

        Sorry Jude! Apparently it was bouncing in the Algarve this morning too. Just cold and grey here xx

          I think the rain is heading eastwards. Been tipping it down all night! A day for blogging and reading, thank goodness we went to the supermarket yesterday!

          Not got here yet. Don’t care now 🙂 🙂 I’ve zumba’d and walked too much and lunched and shopped for a birthday present. Day off tomorrow 🙂

          For good behaviour?

        4. restlessjo says:

          Probably not 🙂 🙂

    When I went to Cornwall as a child, I was fascinated to see palm trees in England!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Newquay is where I first saw them along with glow worms.

  4. compelling and interesting photo..your use of layers, and the leading line of the shadow draws the eye in. Kudos

  5. A fun shot, Jude. Is this in Cornwall? It looks so tropical. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Just across the road from me Cathy. They have aloes and agaves growing outside too, looks lovely.

    When I saw this in the reader – could only see the shadow on the zinc roof, and I instantly thought Africa and pawpaw tree. Obviously have the continent on the brain at the moment. It’s a great shot. And it could be Africa.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It could. Shame that it isn’t.

    Cropping the photo so that only the roof and the trunk show makes a really mysterious photo.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Glad you like it 🙂

  8. Great photo, Jude and an excellent example of going in closer instead of taking a wide shot. I must try to remember to do this more often.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I think I probably had my prime lens on so couldn’t get a wide angle shot.

  9. Great shapes and colours. How do I acquire the habit of an evening walk?? Light is lovely.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I am happy for you to do the morning walk 🙂

    gorgeous golden hour

    1. Heyjude says:

      We do like to walk around sunset, the light is spectacular.

        Best time and cooler over here by then. The time I go out in the garden
