Picture of the Day - 10/12/09
No, it's not your eyes - just one of my mistakes I assumed would be deleted until I saw it on my screen. This is an impressionistic abstract of Goldenfleece in sister, Sue's, back yard. Goldenfleece is a native plant found in the Sierra foothills - especially following a wildland fire. I was trying to take this without a tripod at dusk and simply couldn't hold the camera still enough. The relatively "in-focus" tree trunk serves somewhat as an anchor for the eye to return to after perusing the rest of the image. It was raining at the time and you can see the angled, almost brush-like, striations in what could be mistaken as an oil painting.
