I frequently zero in on the magnificence of a single flower and I do enjoy that kind of intimate study of a particular color and form. But often the beauty comes in the combination of elements – the layering and the contrasts. Sometimes I have to remind myself to step back and take it ALL in.
A sunny day changes the whole color palette, especially in winter, lending vibrancy & pop to the whole landscape. Blue sky can be an absolute revelation, a backdrop for the play of warm, glowing light in a dark season.
