Nature conquers everything.  It’s unstoppable!

This little “island” is about 2 cm in diameter.

40D – ISO100 – 1/4 s – f/10 – 150 mm

40D – ISO400 – 1/6 s – f/16 – 150 mm

This tiny “tree” is about 3 cm tall and it really seems to grow out of solid rock.

Out in the wild

I had a great day searching for some nice places and found a great, lonely valley.

Sadly I had no luck with the birds but there were hundreds of butterflies so I concentrated on shooting them 🙂
