Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “an unusual POV (point of view)”. You can click on the photos below for a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.
I think I tend to notice things around me that most people will walk by, and that’s what I like to photograph. Like this pine tree bark from up close, which looks a lot like a topographic map.
Or this manzanita tree bark peeling off.
Have you ever seen the spider webs that grass spiders make? When they get wet with the morning dew, they look very cool from up close.
I like using the sky as a background and this gray but very bright sky was perfect to make this orange rose stand out and glow.
Living in San Diego, I get to see a lot of wildflowers in the spring, especially poppies. For this shot, I used the wooden fence as my main object, with the wildflowers bordering it.
When you live in San Diego, you get to enjoy quite a few things, like a very blue sky on lucky days, and a very blue Pacific ocean. In this last shot below, I used the grasses growing on the sand dunes at Coronado Beach as a foreground, with the Pacific ocean in the background.
