Phoneography Challenge, A Macro Piece of the Pine



A pine cone, up close and personal, taken this morning with my Samsung Galaxy and edits with Snapseed.

Macro is the topic of the day over on Lens and Pens by Sally, where you can find other entries and helpful information and links.

    A very creative close up Angeline. And beautiful processing.


  2. Macro is full of surprises, isn’t it, Angeline? Super shot.

    This is gorgeous Angeline. It has what a friend calls a “painterly quality” that I really like. 🙂


  4. Last weekend up in the mountains we cut open a pinecone to find the pine nut – just to see what the squirrels and the bears are fattening up on for the winter. It is a feeding frenzy up there, animals gone wild with the hunt for high calorie food because winter is already threatening with snow expected in the area soon – maybe this week! So we cut one open and found the nut and tasted it – nutty and delicious – but it takes a heck of a lot of those to make a bear feel full, since they need to eat 20,000 calories a day to get fat.

      I can’t imagine how many a bear would need to feel satisfied. Wow! And snow already? We’re going to have what I think/hope is a final blast of summer heat over the rest of this week and weekend before a cool down.

    Great macro, Angeline! I would never guess it’s a piece of pine.

    A world of its own down there Angeline!

  8. Wonderful abstract of nature’s surprises that is made possible by the up close and personal–nicely done.It’s also a joy to see through the macro what we usually do not notice. Happy Photo Challenge.


    • Angeline M says:

      Thanks, Sally. I was waiting for someone outside, looked down, leaned down, and snapped the photo for the challenge. I didn’t look at it until later in the day, and was pleased with how it worked out. It is indeed a joy to see more intricate details through macro.

    The photo is amazing, Angeline, especially being you snapped it with your Samsung Galaxy. I remember when getting a “Princess” phone, in some color other than black, was a very big deal 🙂


  10. A fantastic image, Angeline!

    The camera can create a little fascinating world all its own sometimes. This is filled with mysterious light and is wonderful.
