Winter Macros

While some of my fellow bloggers in cold climes are posting bright spring photos to banish the dreariness of gray winter, I was moved to find in my archives these macros I took on my walks on the Sunshine Coast of BC last winter. The shapes, textures and colors of this eclectic group of winter foliage appeal to me. As usual, details can better be seen when enlarged.


Sunshine Coast, BC, 2010

I'm joining the good folks posting for Macro Monday and Mosaic Monday.

You've beautifully captured familiar sights, turning them into works of art to study closely. I live on Vancouver Island and love these ferns, mosses and forest plants.

Ah yes, lovely. Each season has its pleasures I say, even winter that so many people seem to hate.

These are lovely mosaics.
Some of the plants are familiar to me, and some not, but all are lovely, and they fit wonderfully well together!
