We found this on a beach in New Zealand, it´s been on a bookshelf for a few years along with other bits and bobs that we brought back. It caught my eye again yesterday so I thought I´d do a shot of it.
I´m still playing around with ferns – it might go on some time! But probably not.
I´ve really not done any macro photography for ages therefore, it was a pleasure to get down to some today! I took three shots of this fern each with a slightly differing focus and then, after processing in CaptureOne and exporting as psds, I used photo merge in Photoshop to give a broader focus.

I´ve been rather, in fact, very quiet for a while – I´ve just been rather busy. But last weekend I was in the Erstergebirge above Garmish-Partenkirchen in the Bavarian Alps. And now I´m going to give you Anglo Saxons a giggle chance – This photograph was taking on the top of a mountain there called – Wank – OK, that´s enough giggling in the back row there! I was staying at the hut. The weather was very mixed and gave some very atmospheric shots, more of which you can see here on my website at ww.openmind-images.com
I´ve had my eye on this barn for a long time now. It´s on the nature reserve which used to be a military training ground, near where I live. Eventually it will collapse in on itself and go the way of many of the building that used to be here.
