I don’t really do landscapes. However, the weekly photo challenge says “show us your best establishing shot…” so I’m going to look at it that way rather than a traditional landscape. So here’s an establishing shot before I looked more closely at a patch of Celandines. It’s still pretty close up but you can see…… Continue reading Landscapes?
Even though there is a lot of grey around at this time of year there are still the occasional splashes of vibrant colour even before the spring arrives. A few weeks back I spotted this moss glowing in the (rare) sunshine. I love the bokeh 🙂 Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant.
There are many circles in nature and I was looking for them among photos I haven’t posted before. Here’s a tiny one – a circle forming the cap on the end of a moss sporophyte: This one’s rather bigger – a circle of fluffy seeds on a Dandelion seed head: Technically this next one is…… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle

A miniature forest for you today – a forest of tiny moss sporophytes on my favourite wall. They always catch my eye on a sunny morning with the light behind them. You can almost imagine there might be a tiny world there living amongst these tiny trees.
More droplets today – this time on moss. As you’ll know if you’ve followed me for a while, I am rather fond of moss, and am lucky enough to have a lovely wall in my village which has a lot of patches of moss growing on it. In certain lights, at certain times of the…… Continue reading Bejewelled Moss

I don’t fancy venturing out with my camera today, but I did…… Continue reading Happy New Year
