I feel this is the perfect closing image for 2020. Pandemics and insane politics threatened our world and Mother Nature showed her strength and forgiveness by rapidly repairing our follies. The scientist in me knows she always will and she will do it with extreme beauty and unexpected grace, just like this little blue flower. … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Strength Of Blue
Yes, I know...yet another photo of my beloved Japanese maple! What can I say? I really love it and get so much joy from the inspiration it delivers. This shot is all about textures for me. I zoomed in as close as I cool and then played with resolutions to get the distortions from the … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Pushing Boundaries of Differentiation
I grabbed hold of these for a whole different purpose... a natural dyes project. The berries give beautiful blues, purples and greens. The leaves give wonderful browns and greens in very subtle tones. I didn't try to use the stalks... I was told they can be toxic and cause skin irritation. The bark and wood … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Natural Contrasts
Imagine that these are only about 2cm long... when I tilted it, liquid poured out. I couldn't see inside with my naked eyes, but these look a lot like carnivorous pitcher plants. Regardless, they are stunningly beautiful. Not exactly yellow, but more an orange-hued ochre. They grow out of a solid and proud looking stem, … Continue reading We’ve Got Pitcher Plants Here?
My camera was picking up the green tint of the sunlight pushing through the canopy. It coloured everything green. Regardless of the filter, I played with, I couldn't render the grayscales of these mushrooms. So, I'll leave them with their toxic-radiation-green hue. I wonder if they glow in the moonlight too??? Prints & more available … Continue reading Unusual Green

Take a moment and observe all the colours and textures of this composition. Mother Nature painted this. She filed it with reminders of the wonderful life all around us. She reminds us to stop and take a moment. This leaf with it's mottled green and yellow surface drew me in and I'm so glad it … Continue reading New Arrival to Death
I really need to take a course on foraging and mushrooms. The forest is packed with life and I feel I know nothing about most of it. Arg!!! There's just so much to learn. Amazingly, even though I notice so many things and really love noticing them, I get anxious at not knowing more about … Continue reading Edible, Magic, or Poisonous?
We saw these in a small area, deep under the heavy canopy, next to heavily rotted logs... and nowhere else in the entire forest. They seemed to be spreading out from a core near the logs. Bright and translucent white blooms; they vibrated and seemed blurry to my eyes as if I was looking at … Continue reading Coral Fungus
I'm tempted to say nothing about this one and just ask you what you feel when you look at it... I saw this small damaged bunch of leaves hiding in the lush dark greens of other leafy plants from my garden. It stopped me in my tracks and I'm not sure why. I just find … Continue reading Details Of Beauty
