Red

Individual leaves of Virginia Creeper are beginning to turn its characteristic bright, warm red here and there.

I forgot about sweaty hands and the pulse of the sun directly in my face because it was also touching each and every flower on that hillside, filling leaves and petals with brilliance. […]

Morning Brilliance For Your Whole Day

I took so many photos on a perfect sunny May morning of the buttercups glistening with the night’s rainfall, and some I took just for the effect of all that brilliant yellow. I captured this photo right in my own back yard, which is just a little spot of land in a regular old neighborhood. […]
