Silk and Granite

Blue Mountain Cemetery, Walla Walla, WA

Wispy filaments of a spider's web are backlit in the corners of a granite cross, making for a dramatic contrast in terms of permanence and contributing to a particular mood with this combination.  A large aperture with its shallow depth of field has thrown the background out of focus, thereby providing a light and colorful but indistinguishable background for the cross.  Photo © copyright by Stephen Penland.
