Saturated sycamore

For as long as I can remember, since I became seriously interested in photography, I’ve been enchanted by the wonderful effects that various light and atmospheric conditions can have on the natural world around us that so many seem to take for granted. We’ve had a rather protracted dry spell here in Omaha, but we’ve now had the blessing of light, steady rain for the past day and a half.  I donned my waterproof parka and went out for a brief walk late yesterday afternoon, as the day’s light had nearly faded, and was once again drawn to the deep saturation that a dark, overcast sky and a thorough soaking can provide. Saturated sycamore 5831It’s just a pile of leaves, but the one that’s drifted here from our magnificent sycamore on the other side of the house seems to have taken on a second and vibrant life of its own, under these opportunistic conditions, after its separation from the tree on which it grew.

  2. This is a fabulous abstract/intimate autumn shot, Gary. I also enjoy the effect moisture has on subjects. Rocks are never so colorful as when they are wet. Leaves, too.
