Sea Oats

I have been fascinated with sea oats since the first time I laid eyes on them. Slender little branches that blow in the wind but create a community of roots that laugh in the face of the wind and the sea as if to say "We ain't going anywhere, my friends."

And in this particular place, they have opened a path to the sea. How inviting!

One evening while at Hilton Head, a the setting of a full moon at water's edge was there for all to see. Rick and sat on the beach and watched it rise along with a lot of other interested people. The photos were so fun to capture.

There were reflections at the early rising...

And later reflections and silhouettes...

And moon writing, my favorite.

Photography should be fun!

Repetition in the Garden

I love when I discover repeating elements. I discovered these at the Chicago Botanical Garden. The day was overcast so the lighting was special. Bits of shadow but no glaring shine. WOW!! Perfect for pictures!

The spheres on the posts on the right but assymetrical fav

Again, repeating spheres and a wall of trees with a brick vanishing point. Gotta love it!

  And then, the lone element with wonderful shadows and brick diagonals.
