I'm falling behind with my blog visits again. That tends to happen every so often. I catch up eventually. I haven't forgotten any of you and will be around before TOO long. Thanks for your understanding.
No matter the time of day, sunlight and shadows give so many photo opportunities. Here are a few of them as they presented themselves to me over the past few months.
This small morning glory-like blossom seemed to be sunning itself in the morning rays of early September. An unexpected surprise upon uploading this photo was that tiny insect near the upper edge of its petal.
My friend, Carol Anne and I were walking through a woodsy park at the end of September when she pointed out this spider web glistening in the sun.
A beautiful mess of gnarly roots soaking up the water and the sun's rays on the opposite shore of the creek.
I like the distinct background colour change from one side of the diagonal tree to the other - from blue to yellow-green.
Any time a leaf is back lit, the colour become intense. You might think the colour or contrast was bumped up but this is exactly how my camera saw this one.
A Touch-me-not seed pod, that is not even close to being ready to burst, back in September. Others were still in bloom, creating that soft, purple hue behind it.
Here's what the blossoms look like. You can see that some of the pods were still in their early stages.
Lazy, hazy rays of sunlight streaming through the trees after an early September rain storm.
The curtained window on the door of our motel room and its reflection in the mirror on the adjacent wall. The round-ish shadow was some sticker on the glass.
Frank's neighbour kept us supplied with yummy tomatoes from his garden, this summer. These were the last of his kind offerings ripening on the kitchen window ledge.
Still looking lovely in November, is this decorative cabbage snapped from behind its lacy leaves.
While on a house hunting trip back in September, Frank and I were having dinner at a family diner. Our table was facing the front door which happened to face west. Every time the door opened a stream of beautiful, amber sunlight poured into the diner and across our table. My meal was getting cold because I sat poised with my camera, determined to capture how it illuminated the condiments at our place setting. From right to left: My iced tea, mustard, salt (much of which is scattered across the table), pepper, ketchup and vinegar hiding over in the corner. What do you figure I had for dinner?
Early in November, but late in the day, Frank was sitting outside appreciating this beautiful sunset when he thoughtfully called me out to enjoy it with him. Thanks, dear!
I hope you found my collection of shadows and light to your liking.
More photos coming up soon.
