Earlier this week while photographing the prairie brazoria I looked up to see the light doing truly interesting things to the spineless prickly pear. The next day I noticed how the purple oxalis turn a lovely wine shade when backlit by the morning sun.
Voila, a blog post is born.
As I’ve been thinking about this post, a song lyric kept running through my head that I've always thought was perfect. It has nothing to do with plants, but it does have to do with light:
“All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl”
(A Long December by Counting Crows)
It’s a beautiful world, and sometimes the right light makes it even more so!
