I like your 'detail' shots, they complement the landscapes beautifully. This is the 'smaller picture' of our coastline.
Can't remember what the flowers are called, it's going to annoy me all day...

Beautiful detail and colour, well spotted........JIM.

Not sure what they are, but they are growing in my garden. They seem to be able to live on the minutest bit of soil between the weed suppressing membrane and my shingle!!!!

(P.S. regarding the buckle on reflection it was a tad orange Wink - it was Autumn though)

A vital element of the landscape that few people ever notice in their haste to see the bigger picture. So much more inherent interest than in a sandy beach.
Delightful composition and detail here, the delicate flowers thoughtfully flourishing across your chosen diagonal Smile

It aways is amazing how these plants survive amoung all the rocks. The shapes and colours and speckaling work well together Dougie.

These grow in my garden and spread voraciously, but they have very shallow roots so are easy to remove. An elderly next door neighbour, a walking plant encyclopaedia, told me they were wild geraniums, and were used as a herbal remedy for a number of conditions.

Beautifully captured here, lots of detail.

Your neighbour is quite right Theresa, the Latin name is Geranium robertianum.

A great shot to lose yourself in the detail Dougie, both enthralling and instructive.

Nice bit of 'natural' detailing Dougie......top notch !


Good detailed shot Dougie - We have got that growing in our gravel driveway, have to spray it a couple of times per year with weed killer to keep it clear.

Such a beautiful wild flower with a lovely name - amazing to think it can grow in these pebbles so well.
