Behind our home lies a pond that I, up until recently, didn’t have full access to since it was located on private property. When the property was sold, the old residence torn down and a public learning center erected, I thought it was going to be a terrible situation. Gladly, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as now I have full access to the pond as well as to a grove of woods behind.
Photo opportunities await!
Walking the water’s edge, I came upon this solitary stock of milkweed pods and was struck by the interesting form. The light quality was great but the background was horrible, so I removed my dark brown coat and draped it behind, knowing I could darken the color in post.
Just goes to show that in the field, you have to be willing to adapt or lose the shot altogether! 🙂
