While taking a pleasant four-mile hike in an urban nature park (Tualatin Hills), I thought about the importance of looking for interesting shapes and patterns. For photography, they are the basics of composition.
Sometimes it’s a spiderweb or reflections in the water. Sometimes it’s the geometric segments of a snake’s head or the roundness of a rose hip.
Keep a sharp eye and the patterns of nature will come alive.
But what is the answer to the “late bloomer” question?
Asters. They are always one of the last flowers blooming, even in the mountains.
Spiders and their intricate webs.
The eerie beauty makes me shiver. 😉
Halloween – – – a great day for spiders and snakes!
