Winter’s Vestiges

Jessica and I were on vacation at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. It was our last day on the Estate and as we were exploring the banks of the French Broad River, I saw this small plant—dry and cracked but still clinging to life. It seemed to me to embody the seasonal transition from Winter to Spring, which was the time of year we were at Biltmore. I was particularly intrigued by the interplay of the plant’s petals and the sunlight behind it.

    Beautiful picture. Way to express the seasonal transition!

  2. Thanks, Sue! Biltmore is a great place to take nature photos because the landscape is so largely untouched.

    Did you retweet it or post it as your status on Facebook yet? It will enter in the contest if you do, and it will help give me more exposure!

  3. For new visitors—I gave a print of this photo away in a promotional contest, hence my previous reply. Thanks for visiting!
