For this week’s Photo of the Week series, I dug back into the photos from last month’s trip to the Niobrara Valley Preserve. On the last day of the trip, we woke up to fog and frost layered on top of an already snow landscape. The combination created a landscape of nearly monotone white. While I found plenty of photo opportunities across the frosty landscape, any bit of color really stood out against that background. Maybe the strongest examples of that were the numerous wild rose hips scattered around. Here are some photos I took of those rose hips, along with one landscape photo to help set the scene for you. Enjoy!
In other news, I had a post featured in The Nature Conservancy’s Cool Green Science blog earlier this week. It was a great opportunity to share my square meter photo project with a broad audience. If you’re not familiar with the Cool Green Science blog, I’d encourage you to check it out. You can find a great variety of interesting topics there.
