Picture Perfect: NATURAL FRAMING


It's PICTURE PERFECT time again, and this week our host is Gary The Gator, who has chosen the theme of NATURAL FRAMING.

This is a theme I really like, as I often like to find 'natural' frames for subjects. Sometimes they just present themselves to you:  mine is a simple shot of a sunlit desert bush in the Valley Of Fire National Park, Nevada, seen through the natural frame of a weathered hole in the fire-coloured rocks that give the park it's name.
