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.

Like you, I love the little, and often overlooked, details in Nature! Nice quote, too.

Karin said...

Love these!! So subtle, intricate and fascinating!

Debbie said...

I walk slow, because I have to....and it helps me notice things like this! Little details on little things in nature, right there for us to enjoy!! These are beautiful Ruth!

Christine said...

Beautiful details in each photo Ruth!

There is a whole other world to see in the details. Your photos are great Ruth.

Love the quote at the end and I love the scripture verse in your header.

Have a wonderful week ~ FlowerLady

Lovely, fresh post, Ruth. Spring IS beautiful. Diane

George said...

Your macros have wonderfully captured the beauty of the details you found. Thanks for helping us see them as well.

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

There is beauty in the smallest details. You've captured it well.

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

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.

Ruth, lovely images! I like taking those kinds of shots too! I found that an interest in photography has sharpened my eye! Always looking for that next shot!

Elaine said...

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

Rose L said...

Love the quote. I always like to take photos of the textures, variance of color and unique shapes of nature.

Nice to read about each pic. Enjoyed them. Lovely to see the little mushroom...

Bonnie said...

I shall give adjusting my sails a try. Beautiful close ups.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

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

Hootin' Anni said...

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.

Hi Ruth, Always enjoy your photography! These detail shots are great. And, I love that quote at the end of your post. Hope you are having a fine week!

Anita Johnson said...

Wonderful!

Margaret Birding For Pleasure said...

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.

Hilary said...

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.

What Karen Sees said...

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

John's Island said...

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!

Barb said...

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!

As you take a few minutes to look at these photos, captured earlier this fall, I trust they will bring you joy. I am pairing the pictures wi...
