Each week, the WP Photo Challenge has a new theme.  This week it’s “Contrasts.”  I know you’ll see some stunning photos if you click on the link and access the hundreds of entries.

Most mornings I begin my day with a walk through a nearby park.  Every day, I’m struck by the beauty of the morning light highlighting a certain plant or part of a leaf, creating a contrast between that leaf and the what’s around it.  Here’s an example of what has me reaching for my camera each time I walk and what brings joy to my heart.


Other contrasts may be found here.

    so beautiful

  2. Gorgeous, gorgeous shot.

  3. words4jp says:

    so beautiful – you have managed to capture the texture as well – the photo ‘feels’ fuzzy:)

  4. YES. Gorgeous, Janet. The yellow-green really pops against the blue-black background! T. (The leaf would make a fabulous ball gown pattern!)

    Very nice. And an interesting place to hide your watermark. 🙂

  9. Beautiful with the light coming through the leaf. Nice shot.

  10. I know how you feel. I feel the same way. Great photo. 😀

  11. viveka says:

    Janet, this is a bit WOW from me … so delicate and bold on the same time. Excellent.

  12. Heyjude says:

    A backlit leaf is a wonderful sight. They simply glow! Good capture Janet 🙂

  13. ledrakenoir says:

    Very fascinating, Janet… 🙂

  14. Angelia Sims says:

    The detail is incredible. Excellent take on the theme!

    Have a great day.

    This reminds me of when we were kids and would entertain ourselves by holding a flashlight against your fingers or ears. Yes, we were simple kids! 🙂

  17. Love, love this photo..it would be wonderful framed!!

  18. As I’m sure you’ve seen, I’m definitely drawn to high-contrast photos, be it light, color, shape, or otherwise. I think that your gorgeous shot here checks all the boxes! I love it- What a brilliant moment of sunshine you’ve captured.

  19. Fantastic shot, Janet!

  20. Preeti says:

    Its such a beautiful shot! Loved the way you’ve captured the light on the leaf….

  21. A colorful playfulness in this one. I think the colors are a great blend. There is a whimsy
    to it because of the light shining from behind. It gives it a feeling of floating.
    You did an excellent job of creating more than – CONTRAST- than was in the original.
    I wish I could see that one too. Good job …!!!!

    • I didn’t really do much editing at all, Izzy (do you use Izzy or Issy???). I cropped it and enhanced the colors just slightly, so it’s quite close to the original.


      • Actually … it doesn’t matter. One of my bloggers who is from England started to use Issy. But, I’ve been called Is, Iz, Issy, Izzy, and some things that can’t be mentioned. LOLOL
        You can use what ever you’d like.
        My hubby always says, “You can call me anything just don’t forget to call me for dinner.”
        Thanks for asking ❤

      • I’ll certainly not call you anything unprintable, no matter how it’s spelled. As for the dinner comment, I’ve heard that before and feel a bit that way myself. 🙂

  22. kittyzdestination says:

    WOW!! That’s the word I heard me telling.

  23. Sandra says:

    Very arresting! Right down to the tiny hairs on the profile. Well done, Janet.

    • Glad you liked it, Sandra. There’s so much beauty in nature. I finally had to take all the photos off my iPhone because I ran out of space. 🙂 But now I’m all set for the trip!!


  24. Jan Morrill says:

  28. Tina Schell says:

    Love the brightness of the leaf Janet – and the frame sets it off nicely!
