Digital Camera Speed Challenge #463 - Living Greenery

It's that time of year when green is busting out all over, so let's have some great compositions of greenery of all sorts - leaves, trees, grass. crops. moss, veggies, etc. Not just a green coloured "thing", but living greenery (just don't spray your pet green, please).


***************

RESULTS

Comments:

texkam: I have to say I liked your "grad" entry the best, and if that's your daughter happily smiling in just the right place, I'm sure she's happy with it too. BUT...I think the purists would point out that it's not "living greenery" as this challenge clearly stipulated, so in fairness I hope you will be content with being an "honorary" winner.

Paul B: It's always impressive how some trees cling to life in the most unlikely places, and yours is a good example.

Old Crow: Looks like one of my favourite places.

M-Six: Some might say the building is the dominant feature, but I think not. Well trimmed hedges and the thick carpet of grass that one can imagine feeling underfoot, focussed my attention.

Darkslinger: Nice shot of the mass of evolving spring greenery.

philk54: I love to see how life emerges even in hostile environments like this. But I would lose the prominent watermark - it's distracting.

WINNERS

#1 spot goes to M-Six, with Darkslinger and Paul runners up.

So take it away, Mark!

It is indeed that time of year when green is busting out all over, like these college students. Lets go outside the box and push the envelope.
