Don't Miss Out on the Details of Life!

Since I'm the one who took these images, I have a sense of scale as to their size. But, perhaps you don't-especially with this first image. This little juniper, brave as it is, is about maybe 4 inches across on it's best day. Easy for most to just pass by, I think. For me, things like this are like what 'bling' would be to a raven. I can't help but see stuff like this. And yes, those that are with me continue on and I am ALWAYS the last one lagging behind. I have to stop to see this. I have to photograph it! It's as though my DNA is 'wired' for me to do so! But, I rather enjoy it-it's like getting more dessert than the others.

And then, there's this:

Same walk. Maybe before or after that little juniper, who knows. But the colors of the lichen! Oh! Rocks 'painted' by lichen, thank you very much. Not to mention the shadows of that feathery grass creating crescent patterns amongst the lichen's colors.

I can't help myself. I love it all.

Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

I like lichen--especially with shadows!

The sense of perspective seems in play on the top photo - not knowing if it is a macro shot which explains the diminutive juniper. OTOH, I can see this as being taken wayyyyyyy further away so the juniper is instead a huge on a mighty rock mount. A sense of perspective that fools our eyes - which I love :)

Your capture of natural bling is simply stunning. I too relate. Love the little things that sing to me.

Love it! Let others charge ahead & leave you to discover the beauty of nature.

I see odd things like waste, rubbish, forgotten items...
That rock is like a painting!

I agree with you. Sometimes, we are always in too much of a hurry and need to enjoy life.
