Winter Memories – the dead leaves version

So as much as a big, sweeping landscape captures the attention and I love doing them, but I also get caught by little details and vignettes. Especially leaves in snow!

I need something

 

Hey, beautiful

That gorgeous sunlight doesn’t always cooperate, but when it does, I obsess a little. The texture it brings up is amazing and mostly lost in full shade images.

Simple Joy

I have no idea what kind of plant this last one is, but I loved it and spent a while looking for the best angles.

Ensemble breakdown

This last one isn’t a leaf, but a bit of a wasp nest. Again, the sun helped bring up that super texture. I looked for the rest of the nest, but couldn’t find it. Oh well.

Temporary housing

Sometimes it’s a whole plant in snow that grabs me. More minimalist goodness!

Far from the burning city

Or ice!! It can be a little riskier, so be very cautious when going for these. This one was directly on the side of the road so it was pretty safe.

Echoes of the palette

Phew! Do you miss winter? It will be here before you know it.

  1. I also love the minimalist photo ops that winter presents. Now that the delicate and varied greens of spring are being replaced by the solid summer greens, and blackflies, mosquitoes, noseeums, and ticks are hunting for your blood… yup!, I am on my countdown back to fall and winter — with a brief pause to relish native strawberries, blueberries, and homegrown heirloom tomatoes!
