“In short, we cannot grow, we cannot achieve authentic discovery, and our eyes cannot be cleansed to the truly beautiful possibilities of life, if we simply live a neutral existence.” ~ C Armstrong
Green and brown.Those were the predominant colors that came out of my camera the other day while walking around The Granite Dells and Watson Lake (or maybe Watson Puddle at this point). There were not many other colors except for the blue of the water and sky.
I saw a snake in the water (brown) and tried to get a shot of those evasive bullfrogs that I love so much (green) but with no success. Getting close to the water’s edge I actually sunk like in quicksand and even lost my sneaker trying to pull away from the sticky mud’s hold. And as soon as they see you, the frogs make a loud croak and splash into the water, submerging themselves until your photographer’s patience exhausts. If you’re really patient, you can wait for what seems like an eternity to have them tauntingly peek their eyes out but if you try and get close enough for an image, they re-submerge themselves. I guess their cautiousness serves them well in the wild but annoys the heck out of me! So, here are the best of the green and brown images that I shot, subdued hues but they are the colors of the vast majority of natural habitats.
