Prickly subject…

 

This is a second take on the subject that appeared in my last post. I liked the monochrome treatment as I felt the stark contrast worked well with catching the light on the prickles. But here, the warmth of the scene gives an entirely different feel. You can truly close you eyes and imagine being bathed in that morning desert light. The subject however, is not any more inviting! Ouch! Hope you enjoy…

Desert light…

 

Morning light. Twinkling, gleaming, sticking to everything it touches. Nothing escapes. Each morning, the desert soaks in the sunlight and absorbs its energy, consuming its life-giving force to stretch, renew, and go on. Hope you enjoy…

Green symmetry and sunlight…

 

I recently completed a WordPress survey that asked the question: Do you ever have trouble coming up with something to write about. I answered truthfully, “never.” Maybe that is because I don’t put any pressure on myself to post daily, or on any regimented schedule, so I write when the spirit moves. But I think it has more to do with the fact that when I view the images I’ve created, the words simply flow. That to me is the heart of photography–not simply looking at a pretty picture–but the fact that the image “says” something to me.  I never fail to be inspired for a post, because I am communicating here the feelings and thoughts I had when I originally composed the shot. Sometimes with time, I even see more than I thought was there, which makes it doubly interesting to write about. But no matter what, there is always a message–an inspiration–in every photograph I post.

This photo was taken in Seagrove Beach this summer. An ordinary palm branch, right outside the condo where we stayed. I was struck each morning, by the beauty and symmetry of the leaves as they spread out from the center, and the gorgeous golden light that illuminated its natural, yet graphic design. On the last morning there, I decided to capture it. Today, it makes me smile each time it pops up in my gallery viewer. I hope you enjoy it, as well…
