Week 5: Symmetry in Landscape
This was a very difficult assignment, particularly as I limited myself to searching for symmetry in a landscape that did not include people or anything manmade. I went out just after a snowfall on one of the coldest days of the year so far and found my shot at a nearby regional park. You can say if this works or not for you, but here’s what I saw: symmetry in the two foreground trees, symmetry in the two background trees framed by the two foreground trees, and symmetry of the shadow created by the left-hand foreground tree. Side note: note the blowing snow. It was cold out there!!
This male cardinal always stands watch over the bird feeder from this particular bush. His wife is never far away. The cardinals and the bluebirds are aggressive contenders for bird feeder dominance, although not warlike. The smaller birds prefer to wait their turn. All bets are off though when the pileated woodpecker arrives.
