Is natural something else than nature?

Alright... the first one I present is natural (Sedum) roofing. OK, you have to create the basics but it then becomes a natural roof We'd love to have this on our garden shed and garden house.



And, one of my favourites: natural sculpting by mother nature. This "mother and child" is to be found in one of the valleys of Turkish Cappadocia (Develi or Camel Valley). Isn't it beautiful?

At first I wanted to post a photo similar to my avatar, that really shows off my "natural" blond hair. Then it occurred to me that I didn't take the photo.

So I picked the following, obviously Hans and I had similar thoughts. Here's a photo of Indian kissing rocks. Now I just hope Pam doesn't call me to tell me she took the photo

The clarity is missing in this picture, I had to take it through the screen on my front door, so I wouldn't startle the subject.

Nah, I think you took that one as I would have been driving. Though I believe it's Navajo Twin Rocks

Here's another bit of sculpting by mother nature. It's a Corkscrew Hazel tree in our back garden. I took this photo earlier this year as an experiment while trying out my new macro lens (which I never managed to take to the Kirkenhof in the end).

Oh, and I have to add this picture - also taken as an experiment to see what the macro lens could do. The Kirkenhof it isn't. Our back garden it is.

Yes Pam is right Navajo Twin Rocks in Utah. My mind isn't getting any younger. Good thing I have Pam to remind me.

Hans I love your roof. It never occurred to me before (as I look around my yard for a place to put up a small building with a live roof)

Steven your corkscrew hazel is delightful.

Taken at North Shields Fish Quay:


This pic, the emphasis is on the leaf aciddentally, which I nearly caused me to delete it till I saw it properly.

What you looking at?




I did a holiday thread and honestly thought we'd lost a stack of photos until I found some in a different folder. I'm still peevish that I lost the ones of the Waterfall Gardens, I so wanted to show them off. (I really wanted to show Hans and StevenB them too as they had taken some nice ones of the Tulip Festival so a little bit disappointed but on the bright side, this photo reminds me of Gary Coleman with the "What you looking at?" on Different Strokes).

Nice photos all. I like Blondmom's best but I have a weak spot for nature's erosion works

Steven, the photos and subjects are good (tell me/us more about the dedicated lens you bought, please) but I don't like the bokeh (background) in both.
