I went out searching for natural subjects yesterday and found once again, that interesting things are all around! While our recent dryness has resulted in lots of browns, that does not mean that there aren’t any bits and pieces to catch the eye.
This scene includes a hickory nut and part of its shell scattered among leaves and twigs on the ground. The autumn light helps bring out the detail and makes this almost monochrome image feel like you are exploring a forest.
