Gilded weeds

Struggling to find `Shutterchance` time this week....maybe I can catch up tomorrow.


Undecided which photograph to put up for today, so I stuck a virtual pin in my archives and this was the lucky winner.  Smile

Lucky pin, indeed, Ms. Roz. Extreme beauty I see here.
Rosalyn Sears: It`s very strange, I feel quite detached from this image. I can see the amazing beauty and complexity of the seeds of this simple weed, and I marvel at the technology of my clever little camera which made capturing it so easily, but it is like admiring someone else`s photograph. I guess it might be because I couldn`t actually see the detail until I got it onto the computer, that allows me to enjoy the surprise of it. (:o)

What a great shot! I like how this fills the whole frame. I can just see it being used on an advertising agency wall or similar.
Rosalyn Sears: Nice of you to say so, Alan. I decided to crop it like this to add interest. (:o)
They make really interesting patterns don't they.
