10 December: ABC Wednesday - U

Underfoot - one of my favourite photo categories. Subjects are close at hand, and often stationary. And the most amazing, beautiful, and interesting things can often be found right under your nose.

This is stitchwort (whose name I borrowed for blog purposes), a wayside and woodland flower which blooms at the same time as bluebells and red campion, sometimes offering the chance of red, white, and blue flowers in one photo -


Walks along the sea-shore provide unexpected shapes and endless patterns in the sand -


And in the forest, rocks beside the path can prove fascinating, decorated with lichens -


While back in the garden, some of the trees simply throw photo opportunities at you -


Hurrah for small treasures!

Here's to the small things seen underfoot -- they add up to a wonderful sense of place.

I love those small treasures as well. Not only are they a good U, they also make everyday life brighter.
