PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 9th March 2013 is ‘Monochrome’

We tend to associate monochrome as being shades of grey but monochrome definition says:

noun
1.a painting or drawing in different shades of a single color.
2.the art or technique of producing such a painting or drawing.
3.the state or condition of being painted, decorated, etc., in shades of a single color.
adjective
4.being or made in the shades of a single color: a blue monochrome seascape.
5.having the images reproduced in tones of gray: monochrome television.
 
So this week I have a selection of monochrome pictures that only nature can produce.

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 16th February 2013 is ‘Miniscule’

One morning as I was putting out my shop’s signs I saw these miniscule toadstools appear overnight in a small strip of earth alongside the shop wall.

They were so pretty.

Toadstools
I love the frills and dots. They were about 2 inches / 5 cm tall.
Toadstools
24 hours old these toadstools are changing, not as bright coloured and they are losing their dots and frills
Tiny toadstools
You can see how miniscule they are in context to their surroundings

 Please leave at least a miniscule comment

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 19th January 2013 is ‘Haven’

I live in an area called The Coorong and it is an area that is protected by a world-wide Ramsar Convention agreement. My area is a wetlands of international importance for birds.

Many birds seek haven in the area.

These pictures were all taken from my front door. I have a haven as well in where I live on Hindmarsh Island in South Australia.
