My daughter, Kelli, and her husband, JC, decided to prune everything in their landscaping yesterday. Kelli doesn’t trust anybody else to do the job. I did not participate. I did show up to record the massacre. They removed a large wax myrtle and a pygmy date palm. Both were dead or dying. I had a good time photographing these cuttings. I almost fell and broke a hip climbing around in those piles, but it was fun. 😉 I hope you enjoy them.
These photographs were shot with a Nikkor Macro lens. They were post-processed using fill light, highlight, and shadows. The bright green algae on the limbs is due to the shade and to the amount of water these plantings receive. If you want to view a larger size photo, click on it.
