I was drawn to the beauty of nature's ground level.

I was drawn to the beauty of nature's ground level, emphasising the overlooked ecosystems underfoot and the cycles of growth and decay in nature.

In the foreground, the early morning light illuminates a rugged tree root overgrown with patches of green moss and clusters of thin, orange-brown grass-like growths. Colonies of this moss are growing all over the small stones and detritus on the southern side of Blue Spring Road. The out-of-focus background reveals the start of Autumn Hill Preserve, with bare trees and warm light casting through the branches. This photograph is from late autumn.

I used the new lens blur tool in Lightroom to enhance the shallow depth of field of the original iPhone 11 Pro image.
