The past few days have been really hot here in Virginia (upper 90s and low 100s), so I have been getting out early and visiting my favorite spot at Greensprings trail. Not much activity there - perhaps it's a bit warm for some of the wildlife as well. Nevertheless, it's a great spot to sit and observe. Dragonflies were out and about catching their morning meals, and the clouds rolled in and out causing some interesting shadows over the pond.
Out of the corner of my eye I noticed some vegetation growing out of the pond being lit almost like a spotlight by the morning light. The surrounding water went quite dark, so I captured a few images before the light changed. This particular image reminds me of a Japanese minimalistic aesthetic - sometimes less is more. It was a nice surprise on an otherwise quiet morning.
