A Closer Look through the Lens

I have been having fun using my macro lens to photograph a variety of sticks. The colours, the shapes and the unique twists in the sticks I found is amazing.
Taking a close look at things has become a passion. It is easy to overlook the individual branch when looking at the beauty of a tree. I invite you to look closer.

  2. I love the macro effect and the cleverness behind making it so beautiful. Well done!

  7. You are marvelous with your macro! I think you ought to make a book!
    These are just wonderful images. I love my macro and I feel the same way you do! I stalk things now! Looking around inside and outside the house. But mine is not as strong as yours, I’m sure of it. I love how close you can get!
    You mention the “hair on the bud”…I never noticed it until I got the macro! In fact, the other day I was shooting and saw “the hairs” and thought my curly locks had become tangled in the bud at some time. So I pulled at it and realized that it was part of the bud and they ALL have “hair”! ;( Poor bud!

  8. Gorgeous! I love all these little tendrils and buds. Lovely colors.

  9. Oh Maggie these are just the loveliest photos! Thank you so very much for sharing them. Your lens is really really cool. Twigs and buds are my favorite things in my yard right now.

  10. absolutely beautiful!

  11. Shots like these are very cool. People walk by the little things all day, every day, and fail to see the elements that make up the whole. Isolated, the individual components of these little branches are a work of art in themselves.

  12. I wanna twist again like we did last summer too! Great title.

  13. I totally agree Maggie. It’s amazing what you see… when you take the time to look closer. Great macro shots!

  14. a pleasure looking at your photos, the vines and buds up close, the snow at the edge… close, close… beguiling in its intimacy, and handsome all the while as each, goes about its life, with independent purpose.

  15. Some amazing photos. I can just imagine how much fun you are having. I am saving to purchase my first macro lens. Continue to have fun. Looking forward to seeing more photos.
