Frost in the Shadows

Cold nights and warm days, the frost lingers in the shadows. This palette of amber, russet and slate blue is most pleasing.

Unfiltered except for the blurred vignetting in Instagram. It’s almost over, but what a way to go out on a sunny blue sky day.

The shadows from wildflowers on rough newsprint drawing paper, cool shadows and warm highlights, almost look like an abstract pattern but for the clearly outlined stems in the center.

Burnished

Burnished

Burnished by frost and bitter wind, they will hold to the tree in defiance of winter.

This little cluster of leaves hangs at eye level outside my studio window. A reminder, perhaps?

Cardinal Camouflage II

Cardinal Camouflage II

Female cardinals need camouflage too, and this lady has chosen a suitable backdrop of dry river birch leaves and just a few from the burning bush, which is still burning at the moment. The male cardinal modeled his backdrop just the other day.

But just so you can see the photo I really wanted, here is the slightly blurry one of the cardinal in the posture I most associate with cardinals, but the wind gusted just a bit and my camera lost its focus point.

Darn, why did the wind have to gust at just that moment?

I’ll be photographing out this window all day if the cardinals visit this feeder all winter. They actually have several nests in the very tall Norway spruce that’s about ten feet from the window, with the feeder just in front at the foot of it. We may be seeing cardinal photos all winter!

A bright male cardinal is still camouflaged against the fallen leaves, but not for long.

Very little snow here, and none in their favorite feeding space surrounded by the spruce, river birch, azalea and burning bushes.

Not Fast Enough

Not turning fast enough!

The leaves aren’t changing fast enough for me so I did a little work on them. A Virginia Creeper vine grew up my deck post and while all the rest of it is turning it characteristic scarlet to red-violet, I’ve been waiting for this to turn red so I can photograph the light through it. It’s still green, so I photographed it anyway because I liked the way the leaves cast clear shadows on each other, and also tried it in black and white where it looks like a puzzle; these are below. And then I skewed the colors in Photoshop! I’ll make those leaves change when I want them to!

Beauty and the Beast

Impressive

The tender leaf, the fearsome thorn, on the same branch, sprouting from the same spot.

Once more, the thorny locust, this time a sapling, in spring. For perspective, the thorns are about 2.5″ long. In spring they are softer and will bend a bit, not until winter do they develop their full strength, but if pressed straight on from the point they will do some damage. I did not test them.

Note the faint spiderweb above, and how tiny the spider must be to have spun that silk.
