    A windmill of leaves:

    (well, with a little imagination, that is)

    No imagination required - an apt description and a great capture of these soft leaves you can almost feel the texture. I like the backlit ones as well - now there's an idea.

    I'll add a couple of fern leaves.

    What a lovely shot meillana - excellent and interesting composition and the backlighting captures exactly the beatiful effect of dappled light - very atmospheric. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks also for the shot of the seeds - I love the diffuse background shading from white to green a great foil to the seeds themselves.

    I suppose I should have made the thread the no-flowers thread Any and all shots of leaves, bark, twigs, shoots, mushrooms, lichens, roots, seeds, pods, etc. most welcome.

    Here is one of my very first shot taken in macro mode. How my photographic skills have moved on with all the help and inspiration from this list.

    regards

    thanks for such kind words wombat.
    like you, having been immersed into this forum with great advise and eye from such a wonderful community, my eyes have now been truly open. thanks to all.
    and, in as much as you've opened up this thread to include those you've mentioned....

    here's a shot of a mango tree with creeping water vines....
    was on a recon of an area to be developed (am an architect-planner by profession) and it was drizzling, thus the lack of blue sky... would've been perfect but alas.... (needs some PP tho)

    So pleased you are enjoying yourself - this really is such a friendly forum full of some excellent photographers with lots of new ideas and views that they are only too willing to share.

    Thanks for the shot of the gorse? I really like the repeated symmetry of these thorns and you have caught that really well. If you really browse your shot it surprising how many shades of green there are - from almost yellow right through to almost blue.

    Thanks for the aloe? Yellow and green against blue - yummy and very sculptural. Interesting to know you also use a Canon A80 and to such good effect.

    My PC is having some downtime for a few days but I will be back soon. Here's my contribution a very young Gunnera leaf. These plants are tremendous growing leaves up to 10 feet tall and several feet across - this is only a baby just out of its bud but was already 2 feet across.

    Thanks everyone for sharing.

    regards
