259/365: autumn assemblage
New colors are seeping into the landscape to break up the endless waves of green.
I am amazed by the creations of others. Those who draw, paint, dance, write. All of it, really, because creativity and craft are at heart of all these endeavors.
Human beings are certainly not the only artists on earth. The things birds & spiders weave are particularly compelling, intricate, and aesthetically beyond compare.

Sometimes the sun is so bright it makes photography difficult. Rather than fight with it, I decided to focus on capturing the intensity of the light and the glowing chartreuse foliage all around me.
The new leaves & grasses are so bright, when the sunlight hits them, they appear to be lit up from inside. It’s a uniquely spring color, this yellow-green; it only sticks around a short time before deepening into summer hues.
Apologies for missing yesterday’s post. I was at an art fair all day and completely forgot about it. I do have a photo, though.
The other day, I spent a lot of time photographing the winter prairie with the thought that I wouldn’t get many more chances before spring. Two days later, I arrived to find that it had all been mowed down. I was glad I had that last shoot and excited for the rebirth of the prairie flowers that’s soon to come.

At a glance, winter is a dreary scene. Monochromatic. Bleak.
In reality, every season has a palette. Winter is rich with subtlety. Infinite gradations of brown, gray and white. And then, the shock of orange. Red. Gold. Colors that speak of sunlight. Heat. Blood. And honey.
