The Celery Fields in Fog 9


January 4, 2018

December 24 was spider-web day at the Celery Fields. You know that day—when all the spiders seem to have made their webs simultaneously. You may have noticed small white circles in some of the previous posts in this series. They were spider webs.  Here are close up views of some of my favorites of the day.

 

 

 


The Celery Fields in Fog 8 (My Mona Lisa)


January 3, 2018

Your indulgence is begged for this one; the conceit may be a bit of a stretch. I recently finished reading (actually, listening to an audiobook of) Walter Isaacson’s Leonardo da Vinci, and my mind was still reeling from what I learned when I saw this tree through my viewfinder. One of the things I found out from the book was that Leonardo was the first painter to depict backgrounds as bluer and less distinct than foregrounds. The fog at the Celery Fields helped give me the bluer and fuzzier background to the leafless tree (with spider web) in the foreground. Thus, my Mona Lisa.

October 24, 2016 Update: Andy Hooker’s comment (see below) made me want to make the comparison between black and white and color versions of this photo. So I added them.
