An oak leaf in morning light on the icy surface of a brook:
Enough of California, back to chilly, Northeastern subjects. The weather has finally started to change here, it’s the beginning of mud season, the prelude to spring.
Mud season hardly sounds inviting, and we’re well into mass wildflower season in Texas, but your icy picture is still appealing.
I’m impressed by how closely the veins in the leaf resemble the patterns in the ice. It’s a wonderfully layered photo, and the similarities heighten the effect.
I saw contrasts (warm and cool, bright and shadowy), but you’re right – the veins and ice have a similar pattern.
Great contrast 🙂
