The Art of Nature

Nature gives us shapes and forms that aren’t in shapes we can categorise. Occasionally something will become a familiar shape and we are quick to name it so we can file it in out memory. Nature builds things that can come in the most amazing forms, shapes and colours. I like to see the same thing that everyone sees but when the camera is to my face, my eyes see that special bit of a bit wood or the way the light changes the everyday items into something I find wonderous.

Here are some of the things I see.

It is just a part of large leaves which look quite red but up close they are many stripey colours.

Ever since I was a kid I have loved Scribbly Gums. They were in the playground in Primary School and I spent time tracing the patterns to see where they went.

Image

The forces of nature certainly cause shapes and lines to appear in the hard surfaces like rocks.

Image

Sometimes wood can do a similar pattern

Image

It is just a Fan Palm leaf

A palm frond stands tall before it opens to lay flat

I have so many photos of water. The movement of water and the reflections of what is nearby combined with sunlight can make a bit of water seem quite special. This one is the water at the Port of Marseillaise

Image

Sunset can change a bit of the sea at Brighton into a dance of reds, oranges and blues

Image

The folds, lines and colours of the cliffs at Evans Head have always fascinated me

Image

The Norfolk Island Pines are very spiky. They twist and turn with the fruit looking very alien

Image

The wind can cause ripples on the water’s surface which makes the water plants dip and form lines and spots with a myriad of colours that contrast of the Juncus standing tall in the foreground

Image

A leaf blown onto the verandah is just a dead leaf on well-worn verandah boards. Would you have paid any attention to it or just swept it off

Image

Water drops on a red Hibiscus flowers petal took my eye. I think I was rather contorted as I found the drops I wanted with the sun behind the petal

Image

I love natures shapes and forms. How about you?
