Photo Technique Challenge: Contre-jour

“You are the sun
I am the dew
Gifted with life for a moment or two
That I for my time
May sparkle and shine
O Sun, come fill me with you.”
~Peter Mayer


LOOK HERE [photoblog.com] for more of this week's PTC.

This plant was about 18 inches/46 cm tall….so you can imagine where I was when I took the shot! In the dirt!
I think people walking by on a nearby trail were worried when they saw me lying there….one lady even waved to
make sure I was okay :)))

Great Capture. It is interesting to think how many things this is a normal view for. An Ant's eye view of the world. :) Wonderfully captured. Like that someone paid attention enough to wonder if you were alright.
