Detail oriented

I took a bunch of photos at Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens the other week and most of the photos I took were of details. You might have noticed, but I am a fan of finely detailed things. I thought I’d post some of these just in case you’re inspired by details in nature too.

A tight birds-eye shot of three stones in still water, grass is growing on the sides of  the stones and you can see the reflection of the sky and some leafless trees in the water.

Macro shot of a spiky leafed succulent, the sun casts a ridged shadow in the middle of the leaf.

Broad green leaves cover the trunk of a tree and form a tesselating kind of pattern

  1. Nice photos Natalie :)

    I've never been there before – one of the places I keep meaning to go and never get around to it – so I'll have to get onto that!

  2. Such beautiful pictures – you have a great eye! Makes me want to go and take photos of our gardens in Melbourne, but with my photography skills they'd never look anywhere near this good!
