Art in Nature Part 2

Betwixt and Between
Betwixt and Between

This follows on from my previous post yesterday – if you missed it, it is here. This is part two of my ‘Art in Nature’ series which involved taking arty, shallow depth of field pictures of various plants etc in order to produce almost abstract images.


A couple are pictures from my sempervivums, one is the unfurling spring leaves, another is a rather alien looking moss, and the final shot, which was taken awhile ago, is a dew laden twig. Some shots are more abstract than others but the idea is to highlight the amazing detail and ‘art’ that there is in the tiniest object if we just look for it 🙂 !

Spring is a good time for these sorts of shots with lots of beautifully fresh foliage, and lots of unfurling buds and leaves. The great thing is that there are subjects wherever you are.

All bar the last one were taken in my garden over the weekend. The last shot was taken on a walk a little while ago – what I loved about this one is the droplets being picked out by the light.

I think that this type of photography just heightens your sense of wonder at how amazing our natural world is, and for me it just confirms in my mind the existence of a creator. And what an amazing creation too!

Thanks for stopping by and reading my ramblings, and I hope you enjoy exploring with me.

Until next time,
