In hindsight, I wish I had removed the dead leaves and branches from the front of this photo. Although that would have been altering nature, it would have improved the composition of this photo that I took too quickly.
I am not a purist about altering the work of Mother Nature before photographing it, as long as it does not involve harm to an animal or plant, and the leaves in front were already dead. If God know I wanted to photograph this plant, I am sure that He or She would have arranged for a gust of wind to blow the dead leaves away to improve the composition of my photo.
This week we are showing photos of the folk art of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
