    Beauty is in the eye of the observant beholder. And they don’t come any more observant than Mieke.

    What a great find Mieke,so delicate

  • Thank you, Hans. I probably wrecked about five of them (standing on them) before I actually spotted them… they just blended in with the muddy shore!

    absolutely beautiful!
    Is this the original colour or has it been layered, texturized etc or shot in another setting??
    need to know for All that Is Nature
    thanks Su2anne

  • Hi Su2anne, the photo was taken beside a river in Windjana Gorge. There are no textures, but I did darken the leaves around the main leaf and add a vignette to darken the edges of the photo :)
