Macro Monday - Micro Landscape

Not sure if this counts as a ‘real’ macro shot or no – so I’ll leave it to the wisdom of the crowd to answer that question.

Many of us try to take the ‘big landscape’ style of picture – with varying degrees of success. But I think we can over look the detail closer to our feet. I know that can be the case for me. This is a shot of a local reed bed – taken looking down into it from a flight of stairs. I really like its abstract structure. I had a feeling of calligraphy in mind when I made the picture. What do you think?

You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday.

You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the close ups!


  1. reminded me of the game pick-up-sticks.

  2. I'm with Tex on that one, that's the first thing that came to mind! Stewart what I LOVE about my new 24-70mm is I can get the 'big landscapes', but I can also get very nice macro shots from it. Have you seen the photos of the Breakaways yet? Those are some of the most magnificent 'big landscape' photos I've taken to date, and yup, they were with the 24-70! Have a wonderful week!

  3. Very fine calligraphy, indeed, Stewart!

  4. It's probably a good foraging area for shorebirds.

  5. I sure agree with you... so often we miss the detail right in front (or below) us! Nice photo.

  6. Beautiful picture you show.
    Wishing you a good day / good Easter.
