The Brightest Star


Wood Peony by Jo Bradford

I have the pleasure of several beautiful woodlands within a few minutes walk from my studio. My dog, Charlie, and I, make full use of them on a daily basis. I love to take my TTV camera contraption down to the woods with me. While Charlie crashes around in the undergrowth sniffing for the creatures that dwell there, I tuck myself away in a dappled dell and photograph the hidden treasures I find. This wood peony was surrounded by bluebells and dewy grass in a quiet glade on the edge of a stream. The breathtaking white of the flower glowed in the sunlight that pierced through the leaves overhead like a spot light that mother nature was shining on this star of the woods.
