macro shot of moss

macro shot of rock beside creek

macro shot of bark on tree

I am very nearsighted, and as a result I tend to be interested in those things I can see best.  I am fascinated lately by nature and what I've been calling "tiny landscapes".  I am amazed at the detail my camera is picking up.  Whenever I find something interesting, I take a macro shot.  When I get home and blow it up on my computer I am amazed to find that these itty bitty snippets that I am capturing look like many things we are used to seeing on a much larger scale. 

I imagine what it would be like to be tiny enough to walk in the soft green moss and touch the red trees.  The last two photos remind me of places with rock formations like those in Zion national park in Utah.  If I were tiny enough to touch the red trees, I could also climb the bark that looks like a rock formation.  I don't think I'd be brave enough to see what's inside the "cave".  I would hike to the very edge and look in though....

  1. So neat! I agree- scale is so funny when you start playing around with macro!
