Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details


The topic for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is ‘Lost in the Details‘. Here are a few photos that resonate with that theme for me.  Hope you enjoy them!

Fall leaves – each individually unique and beautiful. I especially liked how the blades of grass poked up between the leaves here – something I didn’t see until I laid down on the grass to take the photo.

Dawn rising over an ice jam at Hay River, NWT…  I really liked the angle of the sun and the shadows it created – it was only some time later that I noticed the twig lying on the top of the lonely ice floe in the foreground.  Millions of ice floes jammed into the town – it was a very dynamic and violent event.  So how did this delicate little twig end up sitting on this stranded ice floe?

I did a field lab with my grad class a few weeks ago and while I was standing by the car waiting for the students to arrive, it started to snow.  The flakes were enormous and beautiful, and I couldn’t resist taking a photo of my collar to capture a few that landed there.  (I captured a few cat hairs in the photo, as well!)

Here’s a photo I took of a peculiar looking grasshopper perched on my screen door – green, orange and red – I didn’t even know such colourful grasshoppers existed.  They always just looked brown to me from a distance.

Not that I’m a big fan of insects (for sure!) but right about now, I would prefer to see grasshoppers than snow and ice – I’m tired of winter!  

Have a great week!
