Nature's Curls and Coils

On a hike through the woods near Bedford Springs, I used the camera as an excuse to take lots of breaks from the uphill parts.  I realized after looking at the results when we were finished (and sitting at the pub drinking a beer) that I found a lot of naturally-occuring spirals, curls, bends, and fun curves.  Oh, to take these and get inspired with a little wire.  If only I didn't have to get dressed and go to work.  :)

I just love the bite of this bark....haaaaaaaaaa

I'm really frond of this shot:

I'm going to use these for design motivation this weekend...feel free to share links in your comments to anything you get inspired to create from a little look outside!!!


  1. These photos are great! I think of polymer coils...I'm a little metal challenged, you see.

  2. Thank you for sharing these lovely inspiration photos. Here is a link to my botanical garden inspiration items. Cheers!

  3. Your macros are amazing! I would so love to get a macro lens. What do you use?
    Enjoy the day!

  4. Great pictures! Looks like fiddle-heads...the fern fronds. They are edible and are very good.

  5. Beautiful photos. Love the fern fronds.


Thanks for coming by...I would love to hear what you think!
