There is a wonderful little road close to where we live and it has the most breathtaking (swampy) area I’ve ever seen. Lots of wild flowers, reeds, tall grass and shrubbery fill about 3 acres of land on the side of the road. It’s a tough place to stop to make photographs, as there is a blind corner that you come around and a parked car can come up on you rather quickly if you are going to fast. But, I always park up the road a bit and walk back, enjoying the sights even more than from the car window.
On this day, everything just seemed to pop. The vibrant purples contrasting with the lush greens really made for some beautiful imagery. I’m reminded of a video that I watched recently on the gardener that keeps Monet’s Gardens looking pristine and beautiful, even decades after his death. If you are interested, you can watch the video here.
