Tree Trunk Details

A couple of close ups spotted on recent walks around the neighborhood.

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

Some lichen growing on tree bark. I liked the way the texture and colour of the lichen almost blends in with the bark.

Ivy growing up a tree trunk. There’s something about ivy growing up a tree trunk that makes me stop and take a couple of photos.

Old Wooden Piles at Sunrise

Travel Tuesday this week is continuing my look back at some of the overlooked photos from the 52 week photo project I did in 2018.

Early May saw me down on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. I used my telephoto zoom to isolate the old wooden piles sticking out of the water with the sunrise reflected in the bay.

Tree Trunk Details

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: On a Small Scale prompt.

On Sunday morning I went for a walk around the neighborhood with a macro lens on the camera. I quickly found myself concentrating on details of the various tree trunks on the route I picked.

Focusing on the Details

This week Patti has given us the prompt Focusing on the Details for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

As Ontario is currently under the third Covid-19 lockdown I decided to look back at some of the details I photographed on my walks around the neighborhood while under the various lockdowns.

Bracket Fungi on a Tree Trunk

Spotted on a recent walk around the neighborhood. The side lighting and monochromatic colour caught my eye.
