52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 22 – Nature

The 52 Week Photo Challenge is back after its brief year-end hiatus and the topic for Week 22 is ‘Nature’. That’s certainly something that leaves plenty of scope, but I decided to go with something that’s typical for the time of year.

This is a detail from one of the oak trees in my fields. We are in the depths of winter, so obviously last year’s leaves are dead, but at the same time you can see the buds that will produce new leaves when spring arrives.

Photography 101: Nature

This certainly comes under the category of nature. Despite appearances, it’s not a cartoon octopus but actually a chrysanthemum bud, which I took in early September this year in our garden.

Thinking about looking at common things from a different perspective, I rotated the image 90 degrees clockwise, which I think makes it a bit more interesting.
