Lichen Detail

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: April Close Up or Macro prompt.

I was considering one of the recent close ups of lichen on tree bark I had taken on a recent walk. As a result I decided to look back at some of my lichen photos taken on various walks in winter. Some of which were taken with unusual lenses such as a CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera.

Blue and White

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Pick a Topic from my Photo prompt.

I went with a mix of topics, tree, blue, sky and cloud. I liked the way the Paper Birch trees stood out against a blue sky. We haven’t seen much blue sky this winter and until a few days ago these Paper Birch trees were inaccessible due to the snow in places.

Camera

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Words that contains two letter A’s prompt.

The first word I thought of was camera and it was an easy word to build a post around.

In the end I decided to go with a small selection of photos taken using various camera settings and techniques that show something that the human eye cannot normally see.
