Share Six: January 2021: Details

Welcome to 2021 and the 5th year of blogging with Share Six. Have I mentioned that I love blogging with these ladies. They are extremely talented and certainly push me to a new level. As we start this new year 3 of our team have gone into lockdown in the UK. It is tough and it may find us restricting our choices again to things we can either do at home or in our gardens. Keep them in your thoughts. Another of our team is a teacher and it has been hard for her to juggle all of the happenings.

{Details} is the theme that Lynne of Lynne Grant Photography has chosen for this months blog. Details for me are all the extra details. I wrote a blog and then at the last hour, I changed my mind and went with what I had photographed on Sunday. I have been going to the local Loxahatchee National Park recently to photograph a Great Horned Owl. The male is sometimes there when I go, the female is sitting in the nest. A friend had also seen Screech Owl. Sunday afternoon I decided to go and see if I could see the screech owls. No such luck. The park has a small boardwalk. It is not the greatest walk. There are no birds, occasionally I see signs of a larger critter but I never see one. I may see dragonfly every so often. Right now everything is brown and there is not a lot going on. I also had the beast which ideally shoots 150-600mm. Not really meant for close up. However since I was there I decided to do the boardwalk. I was going to use my twist but could not seem to get it to stay in the housing. So I pulled the beast back out and captured what I liked.

Shooting leaves in this very shallow depth of field is one of my favorite genre. I love that little sliver of focus and all the little details that show up. I also love the creaminess of the images. The board walk is really mossy and so most of these leaves were sitting on the moss. I loved the texture of the moss.

While it is not a great walk. I did enjoy the opportunity to do one of my favorite style of images.

I hope that you enjoy the details theme. This is a circle blog and as I mentioned, we have some very talented ladies in the group. Take some time to follow the links and see what they have for you this month. My friend Katherine of Cobert Photography is up next. I would encourage to have a look at what she has to offer. You can see more of her work by clicking on her Facebook page or Instagram page.
