I am just back from two weeks of hiking in the beautiful, yet rugged, Willmore Wilderness Area in Alberta, Canada. It was an adventurous couple of weeks, but of course I found time to pull out my camera and tripod. One of the great outcomes from this trip is a new found (or maybe newly invigorated is a better choice of words) love of macro photography! I had a great time hunting down suitable subjects and then working to try to get some interesting shots. I love the photograph of this mushroom for exactly that reason... I find it interesting! I'm used to looking at mushrooms from a height of 5'3" (yes, I'm a shorty). With my macro lens I was inspired to change that up. This shot was taken when I was laying flat on the ground. In fact I had to scrunch myself down as much as possible to get the angle of looking up into the mushroom cap. I love the ripples and waves ~ it almost looks fluid! Seeing the world from a different angle is inspiring to me. I hope to share more macro photography with you in the future! In the meantime, I'm also going to share this macro shot with my friends at www.rocktheshotforum.com. They have a great contest going on right now for macro photography; check it out!
