This is my contribution to Scott Thomas Photography´s Assignment on close-up photography :
It is so worthwhile and amazing to take a closer look at things around us. Walking along a mountain path during the week, I tried to look more closely at nature and man-made environment. Here are a few images I felt like sharing.
A knurl like a spiral in a wooden fence.
Spring is not here yet in the Alps. Those are the first buds I could spot on a bush.
Barely out of the snow, a tiny velvety flower was creeping on a rock.
Spiky-looking needles that are as soft as wool when you touch them : a thick and soft carpet under my favourite tree, the larch.
In a dry-stone wall along a stream, a colourful stone stood out: white, grey, black, rust shades and rough textures under your fingers.
All pictures above have been taken in the macro mode of my camera, a Sony DSC-W5.
Once again, thank you Scott for this opportunity of looking differently, more closely at our environment.

Furthermore, tomorrow Friday, March 11, Scott will be discussing the many ways that can be achieved for close up photography. Don’t miss it and enjoy participating if you feel so.
I took this picture some years ago at the pond in our botanical garden. New pictures are requested for the assignment so I will try to do my best with my Point and Shoot camera 😉
More pictures taken on the same day around the garden, one of my favourite places in town at any Season.
