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.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Anything

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Anything where the prompt is left open.

I have resumed testing various lenses adapted to mirrorless cameras, partly because it gave me some variation in my walks around the neighborhood during the Covid-19 shutdown in Ontario.

One of those lenses was my single coated, silvernose OM Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 lens from 1976.

 

Trees in snow, Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

One of my earliest photos with the lens when it was attached to my Olympus OM1 in the mid 1970s.

 

A Photo a Week Challenge: Anything

40+ years later the lens is attached to a Sony mirrorless camera on one of my walks around the neighborhood.
