I found this cool frog statue in one of the yards just down the street from my house. I love the way e has been set on this interesting tree stump. The bonus is-this is a self portrait! Twice. Look in his beady wee eyes and you will see my reflection.
The tree in this photo is such a strong element it tends to hog the limelight. But our natural tendency to look beyond allows us to pick out the graves in the snow soon after looking at this photo. I love contrasts, so here you have it-life and death!
I think I found the last holiday tree. It’s in pretty good shape considering it’s been out of the ground for 3 months!
Humans love to ampthrpmorphise nature. This branch looked like a long limbed runner to me, complete with gaping maw as he fought to catch his breath.
There has been some unseasonably warm weather recently, and this magnolia tree is starting to bud out. I don’t think I have ever seen such early signs of spring. Time to enjoy the great outdoors!
There has been a thaw on this frozen river and the broken ice was trapped against a tree by the current. Another form of light that generates a black and white look even though it was taken in glorious technicolour! The clue is in the tiny green tinged patch at bottom right.
Another deliciously misty day. I am starting to love the camera on my phone. This is entirely unretouched. The sharpness, depth and clarity under taxing lighting conditions is awesome. I enjoyed creating a framing that would have the orange street lighting fade up to gray mist with the tree emphasizing the transition.
