Macro Monday - Ghost of a Leaf

I just come back from a week away in the Grampians - a national park about 3 hours to the west of Melbourne.  Spring sunshine, cool nights and lots of walks.  It was great week.

This image is of the pattern that a small twig and leaves made when it was covered by the white paint in the middle of a bike track. I don't know how old the paint was, but the whole thing looked crisp.  Once we noticed this one, we found a few others, but none were as complex as this.



I'll post more Grampians images as the week goes on - but you can find more macro shots at Macro Monday.

Enjoy the close ups!

  2. I think road workers should make a point of doing this when paining lines on the roadway.

  4. This is such a lovelier discovery than the deceased raccoon that made our regional news recently, when it received a fresh coat of paint from a highway painting crew! :)
    We have a perfect imprint left from a leaf that landed when we were pouring concrete for our garage - I always love noticing it on the floor.
    What fun, noticing the stenciled leaves along your pathway!
