Moss on Stones

Daily Image - 26 June 2011 - Moss on Stones

It is a generally accepted tenant of the photographic arts that cloudy, overcast days are a “photographer’s friend.” This is because the highly diffused light on such a day produces beautiful, even tones on whatever it hits, but much of the time I actually prefer shooting in the shade on a bright, clear day. The sharp contrasts of light and dark and the way the bright sun randomly dapples as it shines through overhead foliage produces luscious scenes like the one above. How can one resist?
