Repeating patterns in nature
My blog friend Kat who hosts "Exploring with a Camera" has inspired me to look for repeating patterns this week. Although many of the examples posted here are from the man made world, I found this strong repeating pattern in a vigorous plant that was pushing through the earth up on Mount Washington. I don't even know the name of it, although somebody told me it is Solomon's Seal. Isn't it beautiful with the the ridged pattern on the leaves that narrows to a point at the top?
I recently got a new camera (Cannon G12) with lots of manual settings and I am planning to try different approaches to photography with it. I've never been too sure about F stops and all that but I intend to learn.
