Catching the light

One of the fascinating things about texture is how it interacts with light. Locally, in winter the mosses and barks take center stage, due to the low angle of the sunlight and lack of dramatic competition. In the other seasons they are just a backdrop for the brighter foliage and flowers.

I especially like how the mosses seem to magnify light. They often seem like they are emitting it instead of catching and reflecting, sort of like the full moon.

A late winter texture for Tuesdays of Texture: moss

Every so often something totally ordinary strikes a chord. Today while driving through the woods I was struck by the way the moss on the alder trees seemed illuminated. The scene was ordinary and yet spectacular. I couldn’t find a place to stop and I got home so late that I had to use a flash to get a clear picture.

There are many shades of green in the moss as well so I am linking this to the Color Your World Challenge: green as well.

May you find joy and beauty in the ordinary.
