Shadows on the Snow

  Shady days postpone the snow’s melting.

The sun and shadows create abstract designs.

The sun slowly shifts the shadows over the snow.

 

Every direction offers a different artistic design.

The end of the day approaches.

Surprising Colors

      Today started out cloudy, cold and windy. The word “dull” came to mind.

                                                                                                                      We’d had an ice storm during the night.

                                    I  went out after breakfast to walk around the  yard. All the ice reflected the gray sky. I took a few pictures to remind me of the ice storm. I just realized I’d overlooked one picture that I’d taken:  It has such an artistic design with a combination of the colors in the background and the linear shapes in the foreground.

The colors set the mood for the day … unless the weather changes.

This picture shows linear movement of the ice-colored twigs on a near-by tree.

This picture was taken about the same time as the one above. Both were taken in our backyard.

It shows the results of camera movement and the early morning light.

Composition in Green

I was walking around the backyard this morning, looking for spiders and their webs. The composition of the three or four sunlit greens was a pleasant surprise.

I didn’t expect to find such an artistic design, and one with a spider in its web.

Water Reflections

Water, its reflections and shadows always amaze me.

Could be I’m easily entertained, or that I look at things differently … more from of an artistic standpoint?

The bending of the surface tension creates contorted line reflections

and line shadows.

A slight breeze animates the hodgepodge of lines and sky reflections.

These pictures were taken of my small, overgrown water garden.

No Name Mushrooms

Buffy and I went for a morning walk through the woods at Stone Face.  The late October day was cloudy. No water ran in the creek. No flowers bloomed.

These mushrooms practically lined part of a fallen dead tree.

White shelf mushrooms also grew on the same log.

I thought this configuration had an artistic appearance.

One of these shelf mushrooms had gills on the underside, and the other had pores.  I didn’t find either of these in any of  my six mushroom books.

It didn’t matter to me. I enjoyed them anyway. Besides, they don’t know what they are either.

I come from an artistic family and look at things from an artistic standpoint.

Dragonflies in the Evening

  I find myself making evening rounds of the backyard, photographing dragonflies.

 They don’t know what they are, so why should I worry over knowing what they are?

I come from an artistic family, and I find myself enjoying the lights and darks, the contrast and colors,

plus the overall design.

The abdomen on this one looks like it didn’t emerge correctly.

I concentrated on having two dragonflies in the same picture.

This picture has contrast and an abstract design too.

Now I wonder what I’ll find tomorrow night?

Me and My Shadow

If the daddy long legs only knew the artistic design it created…
