I took the photo above on a recent trip to a region in Southern California called Temecula. Just 75 miles north of Mexico, the area is unique in that its arid, almost desert like in the summer time, yet draws in the cool coastal air of the Pacific. Perfect conditions for growing grapes. This time of year the vineyards are approaching crush season with dark purple fruits hanging low off the vine. The contrast to the dusty crop dirt provided the perfect canvas to celebrate such colorful fruitful crops.
Looking through the Mortal Muse group I had a hard time choosing, all the negative space in the pool was drawing me in. I came upon Cathy 423 and her lovely photo of the delicate new shoot rising up among the rocks and moss. Its two leaves immediately alerted me to our last them two but it completely says negative space for me with that dark grey background. I love the contrast of light and dark in the bright green leaves against the abyss like background. Well done.
