About LensScaper

Leaf Litter

My first Leaf Panel is not quite along the lines of the planned project for Leaf Panels, but this was an easy panel to assemble to see how images would look in a grid. I’m reasonably happy with the result, … Continue reading

The Forms of Ice

Three images today that were taken within a span of ten minutes on a high altitude walk that I have walked many times – and no two occasions have been the same. The first shows one of the remarkable sights … Continue reading
