Oregon Grape Swirl

A swirl of colours found on the forest floor.

While taking a photography workshop at Naramata BC I took a break and wandered into the forest. This image is not a digital filter effect but was captured in the camera. By rotating the camera while holding the zoom lens there is both a zooming effect plus a rotation effect, a whirlpool effect. I waited for the sun to come out to brighten the colours and add white highlights.
