Patterns on the Post

This is the first in a series of posts taken from a walk in a North Cork bog at the start of November.  A fairly grey, boggy landscape may not be the ideal place to be lugging a camera, but often all one has to do is look to capture something worthwhile. Of course I missed the lone swan flying overhead,  a couple of calls and the sound of its beating wings cane too late for any shots to be taken.

This image is a simple black and white photograph of the top of a wooden post. Let me know what you think.

  1. Now that the glory of Autumn has almost faded away, I am beginning to look at the subtle colors and textures as well (what else is there to do until spring colors mesmerize us again!). Despite its simplicity, the pattern gives the eye a lot to see and wander all over, following the white waves, then the dark splits in the wood. I like it a lot.


    1. Thank you so much. It is really good to know that it’s not just me that can make something of it. Today’s post features exactly the same post but lower down. A very different cold shot. Hope you like it too. As for winter, it just brings a different challenge, but beauty will still be around us. Just think of all those diamonds on a cold frosty morning. ❄️


  2. I love it. Amazing what we miss when we don’t take the time to just look carefully. The pattern is awesome and unique to that piece only. i could picture that being transferred to fabric and used in some sort of quilting project.


  3. Welcome back, Mick!
    I like it because its black and white- it gives it a special feeling to it!
    have a good sunday!


Love to hear what you think
