Great pics, Fairygirl

Can't remember if the above was a camellia or begonia.

 The symmetry of pineapple's pattern is a good subject.

 Just cropped my previous pic, not sure if it's added or taken away.

They're exceptionally good for a low cost lens, Lyn.

Macro photography can be fascinating and you will get endless fun out of it if you do invest in a better quality lens.

I took the above shot in the hedge at the bottom of my garden. The hazelnuts themselves looked fairly unimpressive until you look at them in closer detail.

PS. Verd appreciates the patterns as in your first shot.......I think it's the symmetry.

I won a quality metal detector at Bakewell Show, last year.

Going cheap if anyone is interested.

Interesting cloud formation, Fairygirl. Although it normally signifies rubbish weather, they are still artistic in their way.

Thanks, Lily.....I actually took the photograph as an entry for my local camera club competition, the theme being 'autumn tints'. It was the reflected autumn leaved trees in the water that caught my eye.

For what it's worth, it's   one of the only two prints I have ever sold and hangs in the waiting room of a local chiropodist......the other (different shot) hangs in my dentists waiting room.

 I feel lucky to have this beautiful old bridge within a couple of miles of where I live.

Its history reads: "Essex Bridge (grid reference SJ995225) is a Grade I listedpackhorse bridge over the River Trent near Great Haywood, Staffordshire, England.

Spanning the Trent 100 metres downstream of its confluence with the River Sow, it was built in 1550 by the then Earl of Essex a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I. The Earl lived nearby at Chartley Castle. It is now the longest remaining packhorse bridge in England with fourteen of its original forty round span arches left,:129 and has been described as "perhaps the least altered old bridge in the county"

The bridge carries the long-distance footpath The Staffordshire Way over the River Trent, linking the Trent and Mersey Canal tow-path with the bridleway through the Shugborough estate to Cannock Chase.

The bridge is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument."
