Share Six: November 2016: Texture

I love this month’s theme.  Kim chose the theme Texture.  Kim shared her thoughts on the theme texture:

Texture can add impact to images, and can be just as powerful as bold color, leading lines, or dramatic scenery. Texture adds detail, dimension and even drama to an image.

For me texture is all around and I see it whether I am walking in the wetlands, hanging out on the beach, up close with my critters, or in the simplicity of a raindrop.

Here are my images for the interpretation of the theme textures.

 

Weeds can be beautiful.

Weeds can be beautiful. To get this shot I lay down on the ground with my EF100mm f/2.8L Macro lens. I love this lens and the close up effect that you get. The textures in this popping dandelion are so beautiful to me.

 

A Tern in amongst the texures of the beach.

It is amazing the different textures you will find on the beach especially if there is seaweed around. This particular day my catch was of a Tern on the sea sand among the seaweed. In the background the waves create a different sort of texture.  Typically here I would use my 70-300mm lens.

 

My little girl squirrel will stop by in the morning and evening for her peanuts. She only gets 5 but quite often she is so busy burrying them that by the time she has got back the Blue Jays have stolen all her peanuts. I love the texture of her furry tail.

Horses nose and mouth - kind of hairy sort of guy

We were in Las Vegas and decided to do a day trip out to the Hualapai Indian Reservation where the glass sky walk had been built. Part of the entrance was to be able to go to three different areas of the reservation. Our first stop of an old mining village, where I got up close and personal with this horse. I love the various textures of the hairs on its face. I did use my 70-300mm lens for this image.

 

The texture of a seed pod

I walk in the wetlands a lot. It is a great way to relax and clear my mind. Aside from the birds, there are some amazing plants. I love the texture of this exploding seed pod. I used my 70-300mm lens.

 

Reflections in in water drop. Water drops have this beautiful smooth texture to them and if you follow me you will soon learn that I love water drops and the reflections I can find inside of them. This image was taken with EF100mm f/2.8L Macro lens

    • Thank you Kathy. I used my long lens but I will confess I did get up close as well, but I have a health respect for horses and their teeth and hooves.
