Wednesday Walk Small details of nature

Small details of nature

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

Following me and re-Hiving the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk.

For this weeks walk I am going to share some small details of nature I came across on a walk around the Acushnet Sawmill, I did some shots across the pond but after the lovely colors a week before, sharing photos of bare trees just wasn't in my mindset for today

So instead I focused on some of the leaves and other alongside the trails

I wish I had brought my Macro lens with me for shots like these but my tamron 28-75 F2.8 lens didn't do to bad a job

I decided to have fun with a couple of these photos, I often edit my landscapes or a sort of painterly style, but for this next shot I tried the oil paint filter in photoshop, its not something I will do too often

These are dying leaves ... death can be so beautiful and you have captured some very nice examples, JJ 😀

As long as these effects are properly used and not overdone, I don't mind using them and I even like the results, just like in your photos and especially in the last image which looks really cool that way 😍

!BEER and !WINE - both make a nice dinner with !PIZZA :)

thanks my friend always so kind

I actually enjoyed those effects and have done some more for a post of all Oil Painterly images, but now will give it a break LOL

!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Yes, my friend, I know I am too kind 😉 !LOLZ

I am using the filters sometimes as an overlay with only a little opacity. The new neural filters are also interesting.

!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Autumn leaves gracefully tumbling to the ground, now expertly captured and held for life in great photography!

Thanks thats so kind of you, with some good frosts here the last few days I think they will all be fallen soon

Such a short period of nature bathing in golden browns, enjoy the last of Autumn it sounds close to Winter onset.

Unless the temps bounce back up quickly I think my autumn photos are all done for this year

Hi @tattoodjay and @elizacheng thank you very much for the support 👍🧡
Hola @tattoodjay y @elizacheng muchas gracias por el apoyo 👍🧡

Beautiful shots. You were lucky to get some of the color up close before it was all gone. We were getting hammered with rain when the prime time for colors was here. Then by the time it stopped and we could get out, they were all gone. It was a bit anticlimactic this yaer.

I was lucky this year the last couple of years I had no luck
but now most of the colors are gone here

Fall is much too fleeting for my tastes. I'd prefer Spring and Winter to be the short months with Summer and Fall being the long ones.

Ohh yes I totally agree with you :)

Always beautiful colors captured by you - the fall leaves always a sign of times to come, but hey the Winter Solstice is not that far away!

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day


Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Such beautiful autumn colors love them colorful walks in autumn 😊

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Nice nature photography.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Lovely details on these photos!

I have been really enjoying going for walks and participating in #WednesdayWalk, thank you so much for the tip! :)

MOst welcome and glad you are enjoying joining the Walk

Incredible macro photography! ❤️ Very good gallery my dear sweet friend @tattoodjay.
It has such a happy colour scheme, if that makes any sense. Really a treat to the eye.

Yes that makes sense and thank you so much

Once the leaves take their bow, Autumn is not as exciting as it once was. This proves me wrong once again, these little artistic filters and edits are so pleasing to the eye.

It really is the small things, isn't it?

I think the Tamron did a great job and the macro is a lot heavier to carry around on a walk. A walk full of nature, perhaps pointing toward our paying attention to the tiniest details. Thanks for the beauty!

Here is my link:

Thanks so much and yes the Tamron lens did real well I do love that pair of lenses and carry with me all the time these days

Thanks for sharing your link

Thank you for hosting the #WednesdayWalk!

Very lovely autumn colours on the leaves and pleasant lighting too.

And thanks for the weekly giveaway! I appreciate that.
I've joined 'your walks' again this week!

My pleasure to give a little back to the community each week

Yes I saw your post earlier

Interesting community,with an original idea.I love to read and will follow you,because I like you.Good luck to all participants!

Thanks it’s so nice to see the community growing

Great photos, @tattoodjay!
Said I'm glad I can learn from you, but beyond learning it's also about attitude.
I realize that I do things in a hurry, without paying proper attention. I look at your photos and now understand the attention paid to those leaves to make the photo perfect. The photo, the way you took it brings an added beauty to the beauty of the leaves. Here is your contribution, the artist's contribution.

Thank you very much!

That’s so kind if you to say
And I take that as a huge compliment
I am lucky now being retired I have more time to think about what I am seeing and shooting when out taking photos and the same more time fir editing photos

That's right, of course. Time is important but more important is that you are very good at what you do!


Macro photography just shows a different, mostly unseen, part of life that few actually get! Love your photos. Each one tells a story. Pity it's at the end of Fall. My favourite time of year. Although I only really experienced it when I lived in the US. And New England truly have the most beautiful Fall.

Here's my post @tattoodjay

I do love this time of year not so much what comes after

I try and mix up my posts and thought some detail shots was a nice change

Just saw your post loved it

Living in Florida, we do not have a change of colors. Your pictures are beautiful. Here is my post,

I do love the colors of fall here but will be envious of you in Florida during winter

Thanks for sharing your link here

That's really creative of you to think about capturing the small details we generally ignore. The leaf pictures are looking amazing and I love the oil painting effect very much.
As always thank you for sharing and keep enjoying your week :}

Thanks so much on Sunday I plan to share more oil painting style edits

Have a great day

I love close up shots like these and I think they work especially well with fall foliage. The third shot of the yellow and red leaves is very eye catching - they give off the vibe of being made of liquid gold and melted rubies. And the oil painting filtered ones look wicked cool. Nicely done @tattoodjay and in this case, the devil delight is in the details. 😊

devil delight is in the details

That would have been a great title for the post

Thanks for your visit and thoughts truly appreciated
I did a few other oil painting style edits I may share on Sunday

Have a great day

Beautiful post. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

@tattoodjay, I like good photos, maybe the way the engle of the photo is taken. The combination of object,the color of the object,and strength of the light,the results are very good. Thank you.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

I always love your photography. The shots are always unique and I could tell that without having to look at the blog Id.
I just found the WEDNESDAY WALK and MAKE ME SMILE and I'll sure join in.

Meanwhile, smiling is such a good thing to do !LOLZ

Have a great day

these pictures are my heart lately.

drying, fading, clinging to the branch, just hoping that one strong wind doesn't knock me over.

but i love seeing them in your photos. In a funny way, the leaves make me feel like i'm not alone. like we're in this together.

sending love to you weretwin

Thanks twinsie 🙂

I see what you mean these shots can be seen as sad or conversely as a sign of the power of holding on and staying strong against adversity

yeah - that's the beauty of art... so many different perspectives :)

Exactly, thats what I find interesting with my posts, which I still struggle with seeing my photos as a form of art, but let me not digress, what I find interesting is the different thoughts and feeling my photos can invoke from people
