Saturday was a grey, dreary day of torrential rain. After our summer drought we needed it to make up for the little we’d had in the past 3 months, but it didn’t have to come all in one day! As you can imagine, it was a tad ‘damp’ outside and neither me nor my camera gear would have been happy out there. So instead, we brought a little bit of nature inside to photograph.
This week’s Photo of the Week is of some dead ferns in our backyard. Each fall these once vibrant green ferns take on the muted browns and greys of fall. To me, the absence of colour focuses the eye more on texture and lines and so these images have a certain beauty of their own.
