A CERTAIN QUIET

A certain quiet takes hold in January in northern latitudes.

Plants don’t necessarily announce themselves with gusto, but instead offer subtle pleasures. It’s a good time to study texture and form.

Seed structures, even after all the seeds have scattered, are a constant source of wonder.

But color can still catch the eye too.

And when you come across an early bud you’re smitten once more with the promise of Spring.

    • Thanks Louis – I thought the sepia worked nicely with the bamboo. It’s fun to think about what treatment works well with a particular subject. When I slow down enough to think before snapping! 🙂

  1. Gorgeous images, Lynn, its really good seeing what your new Olympus camera is capable of. I like all of these pictures, but two stand out for me. First is the second one down – the composition is wonderful, and I really like the vibrant colours – esp the lime green! – of that single leaf. This photo breathes light and life. And then the photo above the text “Seed structures ..” – very striking. Great stuff! Adrian 🙂
