Another photo from the archives this week – June, 1996, in fact. These cottonwood leaves were lying on the sandy bank of a small stream at The Nature Conservancy’s Niobrara Valley Preserve. A cluster of leaves had fallen from a nearby tree and were just starting to dry out and lose their color. There was something about the pattern of textures and colors that I really liked.
Fun Fact: this is the only photo of mine that is hanging in our house.
