Amateur photography, Ariel, Nature, Macro
A macro shot. This tiny toadstool, growing within the mosses on a frosty bank, was only about an inch tall.
OH! a fabulous microcosm!
It was so tiny I nearly didn’t see it!
I imagine a slow motion visual field that is able to pick up on a world only an inch tall! (I also imagine you lying on the damp ground to get the pic!)
I just stick the old camera on its macro setting and press the button! My photography is far more luck than judgement, and I’m hopelessly un-technical. But you’re right about laying around on frosty grass and wet leaves! I wear waterproofs!
what’s that adage about luck being some part preparation and some part opportunity?
i like this pict 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
lovely, very elvish…
If I’d seen an elf I’d have snapped him too!
So cool! Love it!
Nice shot and interpretation…the toadstool itself if delicate, but you got frost too!
Thanks Sue. I only just got that frost because the sun was creeping up the bank!
I like the way the frost is purple in this picture, threading through the greens and golds.
Agreed Ruth. Isn’t it wonderful what light and reflection can do!
Marvelous Jude. Everything is so delicate, right down to the thin strands of what looks like spider web.
I noticed those too Jeff. I find the ‘macro’ world absolutely fascinating. There is so much that we never see until we look through the macro lens.
Thank you. 🙂
