macro, burnt matches

Living on a farm, as I do, I’m provided unique opportunities to photograph plants and creatures. There are not many trees here, and no mountains or rocks; but there are a lot of fields! The bright sun gives me many lovely silhouettes to capture; while the rain brings out tiny plants and creatures. Sometimes I visit another town or province; and then my Canon EOS 550D works overtime.

    Very, very cool shot !!!! I’m also working on a shot for the challenge, but I may have to rethink it. This is very creative, love it ! x

  • :-) I had first build a chair and then burnt it… It was not a success… and a table… no success… I wish you luck!
