I’m not color blind by any means, but I wouldn’t say I’m a color expert either … just a guy with an average “color IQ”. So, I was surprised to find a full palette of colors in this palm tree.
I found this average-looking palm tree on the grounds of a Florida condominium. Nothing special about it, really, the color (shades of brown and yellow on the trunk) and shape were just like every other palm tree in the area. I was attracted to it by the way the branches split off from the trunk, overlapping each other.
From about 8′ away, I filled the frame with this shot, concentrating on the intersection of the branches and trunk. I didn’t notice the colors until the image was downloaded to my computer screen. I added a little contrast, but nothing else. This is Mother Nature’s artwork, not mine.
