Imagine that you were about a cm tall, and enter the world within a twig, a tiny landscape with moss shrubs and lichen trees, and yellow brick lichen roads! https://flic.kr/p/2kKCYab https://flic.kr/p/2kKCXQD https://flic.kr/p/2kKyJ1D https://flic.kr/p/2kKCsD1 https://flic.kr/p/2kKyJvG Hope you enjoyed my take on a change of scenery! Probably a little different from the norm, as usual! 🙂
Over the last week or so, we’ve had some lovely early spring sunshine. It still gets cold overnight but in the day, when the sun’s shining, it feels like winter is in the past. I take almost all of my photos outdoors, so good light is really important. The right light can make the image…… Continue reading Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #138 – Natural Light
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.

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.
