When it’s a completely lousy day – like today — foggy, grey, cold, icy… I find it a great day to go out for a walk in the ‘hood’ and try “seeing” the beauty of last year’s flowers. Today was one of those days. I find the light is terrific for this type of photography. There is still beauty in the remnants of last year’s growth and the warm earth tones just so work for me. Taking pictures of summer colour is great but seeing the true detail, beauty, and life the winter garden still has to offer is one of my favourite things to do this time of year.
