Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “curves”. Remember you can click on each image to see a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.

Nature is full of curves and I love capturing them on camera, including these giant fern fiddleheads.

Flower petals often display some type of curve. The petals of this yellow rose are a lovely example of curves.

Of course, roses are not the only flowers to display curves. Here are the fancy curves of an orange protea pin cushion flower.

Many types of fruit display beautiful curves, like this ripe yellow lemon ready to be picked from the tree.

As for animals, some of them can be pretty curvy, like these cute little seahorses with their curved tails and curved bellies.

Flamingos have such long necks they tend to walk around with them in a curved position. Check out the little duck at the bottom left, he’s got some curved neck going too!

Of course human beings can create a lot of curves too. Check out this beautiful chandelier in the lobby of the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. It’s full of curves!

    I love the rose and lemon (maybe I’m partial to yellow?)

  5. They are, as usual, all excellent. I love the fiddlehead ferns and the sea horse.

  6. As a Kiwi the fern has to be my favourite.

    I love photos like this that make us pay more attention to nature. Funny how many curves there are out there.

      There are definitely more curves out there than straight lines and sharp corners. Spotting shapes in nature is a lot of fun. I mean, look at the perfect hexagons that bees create in the hive. How cool is that? And yes, it’s all straight lines and corners there.
