Striking but simple image; love the muted colours and great range of textures; lovely lighting too. A 🙂
Thanks, Adrian. I like these overcast days with no heavy shadows.
I’m with Adrian. I like this one a lot.
Thanks, Linda. I shot this on my way to shoot something else. It pays to have a camera ready.
A necklace for the stone …….. love the light.
Thanks, Meanderer. A typical overcast Webster day!
Like a natural embrace!
Thanks, Howard. I know these are considered weeds but they do have their own beauty.
From what I once read, weeds are whatever people don’t want in their garden. Based on this image, I believe the plant depicted here deserves to no longer be called a weed 🙂
Ditto to everything else that’s been said.
Thanks, ag. I agree but I’m adding this to a series I started a few months ago – weeds. If you stay tuned, you’ll be seeing more “weeds”.
They sure do!
I’m loving it to, I think the composition is beautiful and the colors are so, so soothing. And there’s that necklace aspect too, and the light – I struggled with Seattle’s frequently overcast, darkish skies for several years until I finally got used to it, and understood better how to make that light work. Then when I go somewhere like the desert, I’m all messed up! 😉
Thanks, Lynn. Years ago I read that this area was not a great place to settle because of there was only 64 days of sunshine each year. I don’t know how true that is but we do have our share of overcast days. I love the even lighting, though and actually prefer the overcast when shooting outdoors. Aren’t we supposed to make lemonade with lemons?
Yes, and you’re right. One does get to like those even tones. Today we have yellow-brown air and ash on our cars, courtesy of fires that are 80 miles away! The air outside isn’t good to breathe, and we’re at the very light end of the spectrum, compared to what people in other parts of WA, and in Oregon, Montana and CA are going through. The east gets major storms that are more and more destructive, the west gets major droughts accompanied by out-of-control wildfires. I do think we are out of balance.
I love the idea of a necklace for the stone. That says it perfectly. I think this one is absolutely beautiful and another to add to my long list of favorites.
Thanks, AJ. When I shot this the idea of a necklace never occurred to me. Now I see it.
