A bouquet of Japanese anenome blossoms photographed from above casts a long shadow on the linen tablecloth. These elegant flowers grew in abundance at our early-1800s Colonial in Central New York State. A click on the image takes you to my growing gallery at Saatchi Art, a new site for me.
Here in Central New York, we have already seen more than two feet of snow. I shot this image the winter we spent in Central Massachusetts. The delicate leaves of the lovely Japanese maple in our side yard were surprisingly resilient, withstanding the weight of the icy snow long into winter.
