I spent more time photographing the ripples than the sunrise that morning.

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.

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.
