Bottle of beer with in the leaves. ( man made and Nature series) by 

Taken 4.10.09 at 12. 20, Simon and I decided to grab some us time and have our first walk of the autumn on Bungay common Suffolk

Nearing the end of our walk i noticed in the brown undergrowth theis beer bottle. It always surprises me how man and nature rub along together. It makes me sadto see the clutter we leave about, but it is a bonus as I love to try and capture the Manmade and Nature and have a few image on this theme in my portfolio.

Nikon D90 and 18-105vr lens

Hand held,Aperture Priority, Processed in Efex Pro 3 in colour , with just a slight tonal contast to bring out the wonderful textures of the undergrowth against the smoothness of the glass.

    Funny how the glass looks so pretty, perhaps the bottle is trying to apologetically camouflage..?

  • Sorry for late reply. What a great comment Georgie, it did look so beautiful in the under growth. : )
