Since my last post, I went looking...

Pentax K-50 w/50-200mm SMC DA etc. ED WR; overcast day, using a "thick" CP filter.

From a boggy area near a lake:

(55mm; f/22; 1/30"; ISO 1600)

This one seems almost insignificant, and it's one I've never seen before:

(26MM; f/22; 1/6"; ISO 1600; )

"We have both kinds, Lichens AND Mosses !!!" (Movie reference, "Blues Brothers"):

(200MM; f/5.6; 1/1500"; iso 1600)

Henry Fairfax's monument from 1850; I'm guessing they scrape the moss off from time to time.

(200MM; f/9.5; 1/250"; iso 1600)

Typical Fauquier County rock: the dead leaves requirement may be met by the blades of grass the lawnmotor threw up, ya think? (We do grow lots of wonderful rocks around here.)

(50MM; f/9.5; 1/90"; iso 400)

Interesting, it looks as grey there as it is here, just not as much snow.

Great idea for a thread, a few pictures of mine that fit the theme, the first is a few years ago taken with a takumar 135mm



The second is more recent taken for the Single in challenge this month, Jupiter 11a

The DOF in the first is very cool/ The second one, it's amazing how many times I've taken that picture. You got most of the centre frame leaf in focus, that's tough to do when the leaves are crinkled like that.

I've taken my fair of walks in the woods up here. Much like Canada, Maine winters can be *long*.

I have yet to really explore the neighborhood I'm moving to, but I suspect my number of 'random bug shots' is going to go up exponentially (I'm basically moving to an area surrounded by bogs).

Lets see what I can dust off from the ol' Flickrstream....

Great idea for a thread, Norm, and beaucoup good shots already. Some of my favorite subjects and winter is a good time to see/shoot because the canopy in deciduous woods is open to allow in the light. Here are a few from me:

Mossy Old Stump




Forest Litter




Late Dusting Winter's snow came late this year, and there hasn't been a whole lot more since the new year.

MY Scottish Grandmother was from a small community in Maine that was cut of from civilization until the turn of the century the last one). I think the road came through and they became familiar with the outside world in her late teens. I don't know where in Maine that was, and that information probably died with my mother.

That moss tuft is so typical. A nice shot from "under the pines."

That looks like a cedar tree growing out of that rock. Some lichens too, and probably a few dead leaves. If we can find a fungus, it's a 4 in 1.
