A Break from the Ice

I’m taking a breather from  the ice for a bit, inspired by a comment that Steve, a fellow-blogger and photographer, made yesterday on my post.  Check out Steve’s blog here:

I have been a somewhat ice-obsessed of late (winter does that to me), but I do make photographs of lots of other things. Here are a few shots I took of some giant withered leaves last week during a late afternoon walk.  I hope to identify the plant sometime next week (or perhaps someone out there in the blogosphere recognizes it?)

    • If only it were warm outside! I went for a walk this morning in 15 degree (Fahrenheit) weather (-9.4 Celsius) during which I saw many more of these leaves. They just fold upon themselves and wither together in groups so gracefully…

  9. Reblogged this on Niltsi's Spirit and commented:
    Some wonderful pictures of a natural world we forget about or ignore most of the time.

    • Thank you so much, Francis. That’s the first time anything of mine has ever been “reblogged.” I’m really grateful that you would do that.

  10. I can see why you were fascinated by all those curves. I’m of the opinion that dried-out plants don’t get enough attention, so I expect these leaves thank you for recognizing them.

    • The curves, the colors, the holes, the ragged shapes… I often find just as much beauty in the withered and dead as I do when plants are full of life and bloom.
