Nature is full of abstract photo opportunities if you open your mind to them. Using my definition for abstract photography in introducing this month’s assignment, I went looking through my photos for those with form, color, and curves rather than image detail as their subject. Sometimes I found what I was looking for within photos and used cropping to pull them out.
That is what I did for this one below. Can you guess what is in this photo before reading the caption?
The textures, shapes, shading and colors of the Nile crocodile tails is the subject as the mid-day Sun warmed their cold bloodied bodies.
This one is obviously a plant but the subject is more about the lines which converge or radiate out from the top of the stem. Depending on how you want to see it.
This time of year in the northern hemisphere when Winter slowly gives way to Spring is a good time to discover abstract photos outdoors.
