I just liked the interplay of light and shadow and minimal color.
Ahh, the wonderful feeling when the sun is golden and all the world is gilded by the sun’s kisses!
The sunshine softens hardy leaves, highlights fantastical shapes, and even transforms those sharp thorns into beautiful sculptures.
Yep, greenbrier again! Those twirling, organic, twisty shapes of the tendrils capture my attention almost as unfailingly as the thorns ensnare my ankles and clothing.
When hiking through the woods, certain things grab your attention and won’t let go. Greenbrier will reach out and physically snag the unwary hiker! This time, it was the glowing leaf that caught me and I avoided the thorns and trip lines :o)
