GARDEN 59 – SHADOW OF A FLY IN THE SUNRISE

 

 

Shadow of a fly on a Hazel leaf

 

Shadow of a fly, on a leaf caught in the rays of the rising sun; 10 July 2014.

A hazel leaf in our back garden is caught in the blast of the morning sun’s low angle rays and glows brightly.  Another leaf to sunward throws a long curving shadow across it, and tiny strands of webs light up brightly around its edges.

It looks rather like a map of England with East Anglia’s bulge – but towards upper right there is also a great peninsula heading off into Doggerland, that stretch of country, now beneath the North Sea, that was dry land back in the days when Britain was part of continental Europe.

And there is the shadow of an insect – it resembles a mosquito but I don’t know if that’s what it is –  at rest on the other side of the leaf, basking in the morning’s warming rays.  Peace, quiet and bright warmth, in our garden.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.
