Patterns in Nature

My first pattern is a manmade pattern in nature.

Does that mean it is a pattern in nature?

Probably not.

It is either the result of burning stubble

after harvesting or the preparatory phase

of preparing a paddock for seeding.

 

Always liked the horse in striped pajamas.

 

Terrapin Shell.

 

 

Corrugated beach sand.

 

 

Grevillea flowers arcs and swirls

 

 

Anemone.

A little over twelve months ago…

I had this melanoma removed.

Fortunately it was a low grade melanoma

and hopefully all has been removed.

 

This shot taken a few weeks, or months,

after the plastic surgeon had left me

with a black black and blue eye,

and I was beginning to look better.

He had three goes before he was happy

that there was enough clearance all round

and that it had not disseminated.

Cee’s-FFChallenge-Ninety-Percent-One-Colour

When I think of one colour I invariably

think of this image.

Might be struggling for ninety percent.

However…

…a quick crop and I am sure it bolts in

the ninety percent rule.

For the record, this is NOT a product

of Photoshop or such like.

This is Mother Nature’s handiwork.
