  1. This is a wonderfully complex composition, Linda.

    • Thanks, Ken. It took me a while to see this one, though I’d been looking at the tree for some time. And even after I saw my composition, I second guessed myself. Thank goodness I third guessed myself. I’m quite happy with it.

  2. To me, this is pure lusciousness. I love it. I love the way my eye keeps going back and forth between the epiphytes (?) in the background and that beautifully lit palm frond. And then the bark texture…

    • I’m so glad you like this one, Lynn. It’s a kind of unusual composition, I think, but it felt absolutely right to me. Yes, those epiphytes are bromeliads (some kind of tilansia, I think) and resurrection ferns. And I think that plant growing up the front part of the trunk at the right is smilax. They have thorns and are a literal pain to encounter on a trail or tramping through the brush. I probably should have burned the light-colored part of the trunk in the bottom right.
