Weekly Photo Challenge: Trees
For the last twenty years of have lived in the arid climes of Los Angeles. I remember the first time I landed in LA the brightness of the unfiltered light blinded me. The lack of dappled light and shadows flattened the sprawling urban mass to a sharp edged blue and tan grid.
But after twenty years my eyes have adapted rendering blue and tan comfort colors.
When I trotted off to work in Louisiana and Mississippi my eyes had to make a major adjustment. Blues and tans yielded to a rich range of greens. Greens that I’ve never experienced before. On a river trip the wide expanse of the launch site gives way to encroaching moss, water coated with bright green pollen. Further along the remains of a cypress tree seems to mock me.
