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.

Lets twist again, Like we did last summer.

Surprised by a Crystal Forest

It snowed. The kind of snow that drifts and swirls. Tiny flakes soon accumulated making a blanket of white several inches deep. I took a few photos with my macro lens. Looking over the shots, I found I had taken photos of a minature forest. Some of the crystals twinkled like stars in a soft mist that almost hid the trees.

The Crystal Forest

I really enjoy viewing the miniature world.

 

Why do burrs stick to fur?

Walking with the dog today, we were in the fields at Sibbald Point Park. Sidney found some burrs. After pulling them off her coat, I had a chance to take a few photos with my Macro lens.

Can a burr look soft?

I love the little hooks on the spikes

Using a macro lens, gives me a closer look at why a burr sticks to everything.

I was careful so nothing stuck to me.

Cyclamen and Ice

Just a few photographs for a Saturday night. I am still thinking of the Photo Challenge topic of Hope. The Cyclamen bud, waiting for its time to flower, to fulfill its purpose. Hoping to provide beauty for our enjoyment. I visited a friend and could not resist taking some shots of her beautiful Cyclamen. The first photo is along the walkway at our home. One of the bushes still has a few red berries, covered in ice. I hope you enjoy.

Snowflakes melt fast.

I tried my new macro lens the other day. It started to snow and I tried to capture the flakes. The weather however, was not cold enough. The flakes were melting quickly. Here are my first attempts at capturing snow in the lens. I know others have succeeded with  beautiful images. This is my start.

Raindrops for Macro Monday

The other day we had a little bit of snow in the morning, it soon cleared and the snow melted leaving drops on some bushes in my front yard. I grabbed my camera and took a few photos with the Macro lens. More practice.

What do you think of black and white?

Just trying out some stuff

I have a new Nikon Macro lens and have been taking random photos all over the house.
I need feedback. I need pointers and tips. feel free to tell me what could be done better.
I value your expert advice.

Here I am playing with the bubbles and my new lens. I tried to keep it out of the water. I love the rainbow colours.
