Details,Details,Details.

Everywhere we look there is so much to see and often the little details go un-noticed.
Join me as I look at some of those details.I hope you will see beauty in these simple things.


The edges of this leaf are subtle,yet so pretty.


The new seeds on the Amur Maples are gently coloured and a beautiful addition to the trees.

I hope that you have often taken a moment to see the delicate beauty of a new leaf.The freshness seen here is so pleasing to the eye.


Yes,I love seeing the birds,but sometimes all that shows up is one lone feather.Once again,it is the gentle and delicate details that caught my attention.


We all notice the large trees and big colourful plants,but it pays to also notice the little mushrooms that spring up,seemingly,overnight.


Closing Thought:
 I love this quote. It reminds me that sometimes stormy winds have a purpose! 
             The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails. 
Maybe it's time to stop complaining, waiting for change, and simply adjust your sails!

I saw this post on a Page on FaceBook and knew that I had to use it here.

  9. One thing about photography is that we search for more special things than we used to... I would never have noticed many of these things years ago before I earnestly started taking pictures... I'll put the moss/ferns growing on a tree on FB today!!!! (Would never have noticed it years ago.)

    Great post.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  11. i am great at adjusting my sails, but i do complain about having to do it while i do it.. the 3rd shot is my favorite of all the beautiful details. looking at plants up close with a camera lens shows us things we would never see with the naked eye

  12. I love the edges of the leaves in that first photo. You were very observant to notice that and capture it so beautifully. Good quote, too; but I confess that I'm not very good at adjusting my sails sometimes.

  15. Love all your details! Some of the best things are tiny and insignificant and we just have to take the time to appreciate them.

  19. I love seeing the details. Your closeups are beautiful! That is a great quote, too.

  20. Me too....I really really just stop and photograph the one lone feather. There is a simplicity and beauty to them each and every time. I bet the 'pink' shade of the maple seed is pretty against the springtime greens.

  22. Since I started blogging and doing more photography, I do notice details more now. I love the details in the shots you showed us today especially the feather. It looks so dedicate and I hope that A bird was able to use it in its nest.

  23. You surely captured nature's delicate touches so beautifully. I enjoy seeing the world through your lens. The first image touches me the most. Not everyone notices the edges of a leaf like that. Beautifully captured.

  24. Photographers do notice details that others miss. This is a lovely post, and helps me appreciate the beauty and grace in all of nature.

  25. Hi Ruth, Just wanted to stop by and wish you a fine weekend ahead. While looking over the comments above I was struck that almost every one of the 25 comments includes some form of the word "love" ... You truly do a wonderful job with your posts. Take good care and be well!

  26. What wonderful macros highlighting the small details of spring. That baby fern-like leaf is wonderful. The mushrooms look like little umbrellas. We're having a blizzard. I hope none reaches you!
