Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Spring Bloom” by Harry Lichtman. Location: White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire.
“Watching the spring greens creep up the mountainsides in the White Mountains is much like watching fall foliage moving in the opposite direction,” explains Lichtman. “The mix of fresh and vibrant greens and yellows mixed with red buds can be quite striking. I used the alternating diagonals of this drainage with the backlit buds and foliage to create a quasi-abstract of this forest scene before the foliage became too thick to discern the tree trunks below. In this instance, strong contrast lighting worked best with a polarizer.”
