BeautyScope 236: Stairway to heaven

I held my camera up at arms length and pointed it down the branch to get this shot. Goodness knows what people around thought!

Ever been so excited by a shot you looked a fool to get it?

leading to heaven?



  1. Ah, but love makes fools of us all (at least some times).

  2. Or are they fossilised fungal fins of of a stegosaurus?! Well caught. D&M

  3. only with some embarrassing, sweat and blood art will be good ;-)

  4. This shot is worth it. I also see a big face profile in the tree, which is cool because you do face-spotting so well.

  5. It's rather like staring at clouds; I can look and look and see different images in that fungus. Yes I have definitely been the fool with the camera. I have crawled on my belly in the dirt under a tree to get a photo. I agree with Beate. There is no art without effort and risk. xoxoxo

  6. I see a face too ... and yes I've probably looked foolish many, many times ;0)
