Patches of Green

  1. This one is to demonstrate that while the color green may not predominate in Bear Valley Springs, we do see patches here and there.

  2. Thanks Anita! It is reassuring to know that life can survive there. I like the composition of this one with the various patches of colour dotted around and the oak (?) framing an autumn splash. It feels as though man has just managed to tame this little corner.

  3. Makes it look quite parklandy doesn’t it. Very managed.

    The framing here creates a perfect tension between the two types of trees.

  4. A lovely scene. The greens seem very spring-like. That dark foreground tree really sets it all off well.

  5. The dark oak balances well with the other trees, perfect tension is a better way of putting it. While I like that tension I feel that the road and trees compete for attention. Making this square and losing either left or right sides helps me concentrate on a single subject, oak or road.

  6. That path does act as a strong divide between the two sides of it. As Colin noted, there is indeed some tension here as your eye travels from the darker side to the brighter side where the grass is indeed much greener.

  7. My eye rests on those verdant green trees having enjoyed the shade of the tree at the foreground and being led up the lane. Lovely sky, lovely light. What makes a good landscape?
