Distorting Reality   Leave a comment

Captured,
what is real
in the mind’s eye.

Distorted,
to better catch
another’s eye.

Created,
a new reality
brought forth.

Changed,
no longer just a
pretty photograph.

Fellow Naturalist David Dean pointed out this Aspen Sunflower at Marshell Gulch on Mt. Lemmon last Friday. It can be found in ponderosa pine forests and is best identified by each leaf has five prominent veins. Otherwise, it can easily be mistaken for other yellow mountains wildflowers. 

The monsoon rains are bringing out the best of summer in the desert.

Some of the natural lighting at the time of taking the photo and Photoshop help create this colorful image.

Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light.
Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.

Mount Lemmon Mushrooms
Appear from out of nowhere
Pushing aside leaves —

Sometimes on decaying logs
Sometimes on the sides of trees.
