I took this photo at my parents’ house a week or so back. I saw these pink and white berries in the hedge between gardens and they caught my eye. I’ve just been trying to work out what plant it is and as far as I can tell it is a type of Snowberry, specifically…… Continue reading Snowberry
There’s not a lot out there for the macro photographer at the moment. I guess this is the time of year to switch to landscapes, but still I look for the small things. I just can’t help myself. Today I had a little potter about outside while it was dry and fairly bright. Quite squelchy…… Continue reading Moss Island
This leaf reminds me of a map … a leaf shaped island in a sea of bokeh.
This is a photo from that walk in my lunch break nearly two weeks back. As I mentioned, I was looking out for fungi, and spotted this cute little one growing on a log. It was nice to find one that wasn’t in a clump (so I could just focus on this one) and also…… Continue reading Miniature Mushroom
This photo was a bit of a happy accident. I was taking photos of my daughter at her riding competition using Bruce’s 200mm zoom lens and as she went round the arena close to me I couldn’t zoom out far enough but snapped a shot anyway. I thought it was one to discard but realised…… Continue reading Dotty the Pony

Looks pretty ordinary until you look closely at all the little droplets on it. This photo has a hint of Christmas about it,…… Continue reading Embracing the Rain
Another photo from my Monday walk (which seems such a long way away now!). There was quite a lot of frilly lichen on the trees. I like the way this one stands out against the green background.
Another shot from Monday. I was specifically looking out for fungi and found several different sorts. I’ve had a go at trying to identify them but I’m not getting very far. If you know what these are, please comment. It didn’t do my leg much good unfortunately – squatting down to get shots is rather…… Continue reading Busy Forest Floor
Another shot from my walk yesterday. The sun on the leaves was lovely and I was happy to get some pretty bokeh as well as the lovely colours 🙂
