This Sabal Palmetto, or cabbage palm, is native to southeastern United States. The contrasting textures of the trunk of the tree, the wooden fence, and the green grasses and trees in the background caught my eye.

I set up my tripod right in front of the palmetto to make this symmetrical shot. In post-processing, I used topaz-adjust to emphasize the texture of the tree while keeping the softness in the other elements in the scene.

    Great textures in the palmetto Anne that contrast beautifully with colors of the background.

    First thought – this has to be a montage! But I’m wrong, and happy to admit it – what a wonderful find and real clever framing.

    Hello Anne,
    Your website has changed a lot since my last visit.
    Very nice outlook.
    And you are still on the road of adventure, great to see that. Now that our 8 wek course on BP is over I feel like ” what next “.
    Will have more time to follow your tour and photography !

    • Hi Alexander, yes I launched my new website with a whole new look and feel as well as integrated blog and photo gallery. It was a lot of work, but worth it in the end. Thank you very much for your visit and comments. I enjoyed seeing your photos during our course, keep in touch! (By the way, Bill’s other course is excellent if you haven’t already taken it.)
