nature, leaf, arteries and veins

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Mark this IS good. So intricately designed. Thank you for sharing such a lovely image with us.

  • Thanks Angie, nature is marvellous, its only when you see what goes in to making a leaf work that you realise what’s involved in making a tree grow and more. Makes you feel kinda small really. Warm regards mark.
