The quality of light

Our eyes adjust automatically to the quality of the light. White objects always look white, black objects always look black. But in photographs you can adjust the colors in anyway you like. I was fascinated by the patterns in this blooming palo verde tree. It is a dramatic example of the quality of the sunlight that was slanting in from a just risen sun. The sky was clear and there was very little reflective color. The photo captures the true essence of the yellow blossoms contrasting with the darker bark of the tree.
