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.
For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Texture
Recently I did a post about last week’s dominant texture: Rain. Today’s texture is melting snow, rain’s more charming (if you can stay inside and be warm unless outside taking pictures) sibling.
The grass poking through and my many bulbs sprouting leaves are hoping we can get back to our regularly scheduled almost-warm but wet almost-spring soon.

Last week the defining color was grey and the texture was wet. In this case raindrops falling on the waters of Puget Sound. Believe it or not the photo is in color.

Nancy Merrill Photography Photo a week: Texture.
I did get to the Gingerbread Village yesterday. This year the theme is the Harry Potter books. The village was amazing. Worth putting off getting my emissions test for. One very cool thing about it is to see all of the ways cookies, candies and crackers are used to create different textures. Here is a small sampler:
I was a good girl and got the emissions test done today. Not nearly as much fun.
