The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week: Ornate
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Motion.”
This photo was taken on the last Summer Solstice, the height of the year for the Oak King in the Oak King and the Holly King story. Although the dim light of the cloudy day and tree canopy prevented a crisp still shot of the gently twirling oak wreath, made of freshly fallen oak branches, the motion in the image was still interesting.
