Natural landscapes: bursting from the messy ground


Sifted through the archives to find this wonderful 2006 scene of new growth in a charming, photogenic park along the shore of Lake Ontario east of Toronto. In retrospect, I might have cleaned up the background before making this picture, but this is certainly an accurate picture of the forest floor in early spring.
I used the built-in flash on my digital camera to help the new green growth stand out amongst the contrasty ancient leaves.
