I’m fascinated by textures, and this backlit holly caught my eye. Holly leaves are so unique, but usually their dark waxy leaves don’t have enough contrast to appreciate their thorny edges so clearly. The sticks from the branches of the trees behind added to the visual feast of texture.
These images are part of a series posted chronologically from one river walk on Jan 13/18. I wanted to take you along on this beautiful winter day and share what you might have stumbled upon if you were walking in my shoes. To take the whole walk, start with clicking on Along the Way and use right arrow or Older Posts button to scroll through them all. Or use the Search tool just below the posts to find Along the Way. I’ll keep adding images each day until we wander back home.
