An oak on a beach.

This is the kind of micro-landscape I like.  As we were wandering along the beach at Lorne we found this oak leaf sitting at the top of the wave wash.

I like the contrast between the sand and the leaf.

Part of me wishes it was a beech - then we would have a beech on a beach!


You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday 2 and I Heart Macro.

Enjoy the pictures.

This is an outstanding photo, even of its not a beech on a beach, nor a peach.
