Sunlight and Shadow

Posted by

Yellow iris catches the last light of the day against the deep shadow of the fence.

**Today we are heading West for a couple of weeks. I will have only limited computer and internet access, but will be able to read comments on my phone. I will catch up with your photos later. Happy shooting.
