Photo Competition #32 – Hidden Nature

Cherished fellow charioteers are not required to read the post, the title says it all.

But I do have a light at the end of my long driveway, it’s a “low wattage” light of course (sorry could not let that pass).

It marks the turn off from the hill, dark at night and is provided power by a long underground conduit shown as a pipe on the upper left picture.

The light at the end of the driveway

The other day I was poking about up there when I noticed something on the conduit box of the light, (see right hand picture). Two tiny tree frogs (peepers I call them, they make a high-pitched chirp loud out of all proportion to their size). How small are they? Well just to give some sense of scale I displaced the nearest and replaced it with my pencil stub (see lower left). That’s how small they are.

So back to this month’s subject “Hidden Nature”  anything you wish it to be but the more hidden the better.

Closing September 30 at midnight EDT ( a few extra hours for the prevaricators, you know who you are.

  1. Gotta have me a go at this, but I reckon someone with one of them fancy macro lenses gonna win.


  2. I reckon I’ll have a shot at snapping the royals sans culottes – no doubt they’ll doff them again soon. Even the Duke of Edinburgh did at Bræmar!

  3. LW, good evening.

    I was struggling to come up with anything until I remembered last year and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef,

    I know that it’s not great and that neither Hans nor Lotte Hass would be proud of it but you have to allow for the facts that I was not used to underwater,photography, using a hired camera and thought that I was trying for an interesting coral effect.

    I never even noticed the bloody squid until I came up for air and checked the photos on the way back to Cairns.
