Weekly Photo Challenge–Shadowed

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, winter 2012.

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, winter 2012.

Oftentimes, the camera reveals things I don’t see at a glance, like the tracery of branches across a crocus-studded lawn.  This photo, made at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in mid-February 2012, was an instant favorite.  The image, taken to illustrate the seasonal beauty of bark on well-pruned crepe myrtle trees (Lagerstroemia), is enchanted by the slanting afternoon light and the female form, spinning in her reach, which seem to stir the trees into a waltz with their arms fling wide in exuberance.
