 Stendörren Natural Reserve
Copyright Thomas Males
Stendörren is one of the nicest natural areas in this part of Sweden, of the ones I have been to. What is wrong and what is wright when it comes to pictures.This is not exactly as it looked there this day, but than again a photo is never really real, since it's just a crude attempt to capture the world, but pictures are just a reflection, not the real thing, this is how it looked that day with a full spectrum camera, with a infrared filter, and then some post production tweaking to the imagery. But no person ore animal wold look at the world this way. As far as I know. Pretty cool pictures though I think, mission to mars like.

Rosa ssp.
Copyright Thomas Males

This is from my latest  macro excursion, it's a hostile environment when it's mosquitoes in the woods, Macro is very easy and very hard, it's easy enough to take a picture of something small, but to get the details and color and dof right is hard, (depth of field). This is a wild rose of some sort, in Sweden we use the rose hip (the berries) and make a soup rich in vitamin C.
I have started to enjoy macro photography more and more, although it is hard, but then again aren't everything worth learning hard in the beginning ?
