    Weekly Theme "HIDDEN BEAUTY IN NATURE"

    ... and NO its not another flower thread, the theme "Hidden Beauty in Nature" refers to those things you might not take a second look at as you look around but yet in themselves can be so photogenic and artisitic. Sometimes a single blade of grass in the right setting can be as awesome as a bunch of red roses. A dead flower head can have it's own attraction and the next time you see a small insignificant flower, get out ther macro and you might find a whole new world of beauty.

    This doesn't just have to be about flora, fauna has its own beauty which sometimes gets overlooked, a cast off antler, a solitary paw print - use your imagination and open your eyes.

    This isn't a challenge just a way to get us looking at nature a little different.

    2 images per post please.

    This theme will run for 2 weeks.

    Amongst all the other dried grasses and such you wouldn't have given this dried flower head a second look, however take it in isolation and with a shallow depth of field it takes on a beauty all of it's own.



    .... and here some hidden nature being revealed with a backlit fern showing us the spores under the leaf, something we would normally only see by turning the leaf over.

    Stone. Mother Nature painted the picture over millions of years.



    She likes to use subtle colors that make us pause...when we take the time to look!
