… everything looks like a nail.
An old joke, I know, but the parallel is there. When I go out armed with a particular lens, I tend to make my shooting match the capability of the lens. As it happens this particular lens is very versatile, capable of excellent portraiture as well as the extreme close-up which is its real purpose. On this occasion, I had it set for very close shooting, and went back to the are of Pinehaven where I visited a few days ago, this time with a tripod.
I have no real narrative to accompany individual images because I have no expertise in the micro-foliage of the forest floor.
Each time a moved a metre to the left or right there was something new to see. From a distance it all looked like a soft green baize, but as you get closer the intricacy and the complexity of each plant became visible.
Even the moss on top of an old fence post presents itself differently in extreme close-up.
This too shall pass.
