At Fountain Lake Reservoir in Ansonia, CT.
This photo is graded on a curve.
I rested the edge of the lens barrel on the bark where I could get a contrasted view of the tree and the woods. The result was a graduated bokeh effect on the curve of the tree and a distance enhancement on the background woods, which can still be identified, especially in the thumbnail.
I think I also somehow managed to get a landscape into a macro photo.
Just inside the woods near Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.
Symplocarpus foetidus, also known as eastern skunk cabbage, swamp cabbage, clumpfoot cabbage, meadow cabbage, foetid pothos, or polecat weed. In the woods near Legion Pool in the Seymour Land Trust in Seymour, CT.
Looking like pitcher plants, the flowers emerge before the main plant in the spring, and produce a foul odor to attract pollinators. I am definitely not a pollinator.
