Not a competition entry

I have found the idea behind the current photo competition quite inspiring, so although this isn’t an entry I thought I’d share.

We had a trip to the Oxford Botanic Gardens on Sunday:

This is a black pine: a detail of the trunk formation

bearing in mind Ara’s parameters I zoomed in closer

I may not have noticed the holly growing in the bifurcation if I hadn’t been looking out for interesting detail. Back at home I cropped even closer

Thank you, Ara! You have sharpened my eyes.

No time to lose. No, time to lose. Make time to stand and stare.... Did you see that?

  1. I took this pic in Spain 2009. The tree is not native to Spain but rather Argentina. It is not as old as it looks either, probably only forty years old. A caption could easily be ‘Father & Child.’

  2. Hello Nym.

    I’m pleased that the competition inspired you to look more closely at your photos. Your pictures of the black pine and close ups are an excellent example of interesting “detail”.
