Sunday

Special

The dictionary defines Special as:
distinguished by some unusual quality
I saw these in the forest and thought they were SPECIAL.



I get the feeling this branch is saying to the other branch 
"I won't let you go!"

I'm the first to comment this time.
Your pictures are better every time. I love the second one most.

YesBut said...

What is the first picture? - Clicked on it but couldn't get an enlarged shot.

Sandy Carlson said...

Your eye has captured some special beauty, to be sure! God bless.

Neva said...

Very "special"! I love the branch wrapped around the other....nature is funny sometimes!

Diane said...

I second the comment by Dick, I feel your work is improving with every shot. Compositionally, the last two work very well, and start to work as abstracts. The delicate forms and subtle tones are especially lovely. I also like the way you have varied the depth of field a bit in each. The first shows the viewer lots of texture with moody overtones, the second enhances one's focus on the delicate form by blurring the background, eliminating any chance of confusion. The third allows the eye to follow the shape of the tendril into the middle-ground, then softly fading into the background. Your curiosity and attention to detail works wonderfully here.

You show how beautiful nature is, in its smallest details.

Moi said...

the knotty branch is such a neat observation..........and I so agree with ruth. Have a beautiful sunday :)

Jeff B said...

All three great examples of how much there is to see if we will slow down and take in the details.

Jenty said...

I really like the first shot. Wow!!

dot said...

Beautiful shots and definately "special"! I can't decide between the second and third but they are all great.

Kostas said...

Amazing the photographs and in this post.
Splendid macro.

imac said...

Thats nature for you, showing itself every where you look.
Even better when someone like you captures it at its best.

RuneE said...

I must say that you do have a "hand" with close-ups. I like all of them thoroughly, but especially the third one has a story to tell.

Anita Bower said...

You have a good eye for details and composition. Nice.

June said...

I love these sort of shots...seeing the little things around us.

Salty said...

Excellent work! I'm peased that you are finding plenty of excellent subject material this winter. Nature offers an infinite supply of photo-ops, we only need to slow down and see.

Andrée said...

These are so lovely, you have that eye that is required to see these things. These are delicate and have wonderful color.

Ex-Shammickite said...

You are all so right, very "special" photos, showing the details that Mother Nature has put there for us to see... but so many of us don't even bother to look.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Very Special... each of them.

Last year I might not have given anything like this a second glance. Chances are I would not have seen them anyway. Now thanks to my camera, and then doing my blog, visiting other like minded folk my eyes are now opened to many more wonders around me.
Not just that but we can all learn from each other. Pictures like these here are now shown all over the world and can help to inspire others to try and emulate then in their own way. This and the friendliness of blogging is something else I think is SPECIAL.

Paulie said...

Especially unique! You were blessed to have found such neat things in nature to photograph! Thanks for sharing!

Joy said...

Fantastic shots! You see what is invisible to the naked eye :D

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and your kind comments. Drop by again!

Fantastic Kerri

Bud Cline said...

A fine collection of images - I really like the middle one. The bottom one looks like a honey suckle vine.

Willard said...

Kerri,
I like them all, but the middle one looks especially special to me. Great work!

I think you are right in your turkey comment on my blog too. I am almost certain I have seen them standing that way in warm weather also.

Mary said...

You have a good eye, Kerri. Not many would notice things so subtle. Good job. Great photos.

Lara said...

a work of art!

Alyssa said...

I always enjoy your photos. The vine wrapped around the little branch is very nice.

Merisi said...

Truly special!
Isn't it interesting how many colors are out there in a seemingly bleak winter landscape?

evlahos said...

and they are special. good work

Marvin said...

They are all great, but I think I like the center one the best. I find that winter sometimes pushes us a little bit harder to actually look at the natural beauty that surrounds us. You did a fantastic job of doing just that.

Thanks for visiting and commenting.

quintarantino said...

Unique they are.

Andrea said...

As I look at this I think....
"NATURE RUNS ITS COURSE"
Beautiful pictures.

MedaM said...

You really have a perfect eye to notice the small but interesting things in nature. I have caught myself trying to do the same. You inspired my doing that. These photos are really nice and interesting.

gaz said...

nice.
i like the little vine wrapped round the twig.

CG said...

Very well spotted kerri. And thanks for your lovely comments on my blog!

Digital Polaroids said...

Your eye is amazing. You captured such beauty in branches and leaves... I hope I can do it sometime!

Irene said...

Those are very cool! You definitely have a great eye!!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

They are definitely truly special and very nice and well seen and captured.

Sand said...

The second one is my favorite of these three. Awesome!

bonnie said...

You have an amazing eye and such a talent for seeing beauty.

photowannabe said...

Five gold stars for these shots Kerri.
Very SPECIAL.

Robert said...

Nice shots. I don't know what the name of the plant in your second shot is, but I posted a shot with the same plant:

You captured three very special pictures! I've said it before, and I'm going to say it again - you have a wonderful eye!
