Tree Bark Texture

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Texture prompt.

I quickly decided to go with a small selection of photos featuring tree bark taken on some of my recent walks around the neighborhood.

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.

A break from Monochrome Monday as I continue my exploration of lichen growing on trees and boulders around the neighborhood.

I spotted these orange and grey lichens on a tree trunk during a walk last Saturday afternoon.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bark prompt.

Rather an appropriate prompt as tree bark has been a regular subject of my walks around the neighborhood since the various Covid-19 pandemic regulations first started nearly a year ago.

2020: Natural Detail

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Challenge Review 2020.

I decided to go with the theme of details of the natural world. A small selection of photos from 2020.

Silent Sunday: 3rd May 2020

The green moss and orange lichen on a limestone boulder caught my eye on a walk in the spring.

CBWC: Hosta Leaves Detail

Early summer saw me experimenting with the monochrome options on a mirrorless camera. Variegated Hosta leaves in monochrome.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Negative Space

Summer also saw me experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. A Coneflower photographed with a fast portrait lens wide open.

A sign of autumn.

Late summer saw the leaves starting to change colour. This solitary orange Maple leaf caught my eye when I was walking past it.
