My Personal Vegetation!

Images are not taken, but made. If I see an interesting composition, I can spend some time in studying the subject from several different angles.

In this photo, taken in my backyard, I focused on the play of light and shadow on the familiar. Notice in particular the detail on the leaves caused by the partially backlit and partially cross-lite dappled sunlight.

The photo of the pine tree branch was taken in the same general vicinity. Here I made a point of focusing on a section of the pine needles and the oblique angle of soft light brings out the subtle details.
