“What Remains” – Stouffville

“What Remains” - Stouffville

One of the things I also enjoy about spring is the fact that some plants seem to weather the winter quite well. Despite heavy snow and ice, these flowers heads have managed to make it through the winter intact.

I often walk around Wendat Pond in Stouffville because the early evening light is so nice and offers some great composition opportunities. Yesterday was no exception. The sun was just starting to set and lit up the far shore of the pond in a mix of browns and golds, with splashes of green. Using a wide aperture softens these background tones nicely and makes a beautiful backdrop for photographing the plants on the near side of the pond.
