This past weekend I had my camera in the backyard.
We have a nice backyard, we are in the suburbs, so there are houses each way I look and power lines obstructing my nature photos. I've started taking pictures facing up to the sky, then lightening them so the background nearly fades away. I really love what happens to the subject.
This spider was cool. He was the only thing living on my Japanese Red Maple that I got as a freebie from a friend. Unfortunately, it was too shocked to keep it's leaves this year.
I'm hoping that the roots will find a good footing this winter and in spring, sprout back to life. Oh, yes, that would be good. I'd even let the spider stay.
