Back to the bush, again.

While I have enjoyed looking at lots of misty landscape and snow covered branches, we in Sydney have been experiencing humid days of 35-38C /100F. Which is lovely when you are wafting around in the water - but fairly taxing if trying to do much else.

Yesterday I thought I could beat the belting sun, if I ventured out before it did. I pretty much wandered the same path down to the dam - but tried to collect different colours and textures on my iPhone... I thought you might like to come along.. The video pieces have the sounds of the bush left in.. the rest.. is quiet..

 I picked up some lovely leaves.. enjoying the effect of nature's mark making

I did a little macro photography, using some 'tube extenders' i purchased fairly cheaply on eBay
that fit onto my Canon 700d. I love how the leaves become the landscape..

Then I wanted to play around with the a4 inkjet prints, 
so added some marks and watercolour splurges of my own...

I've always enjoyed playing around with scale, and this was also fun, 
seeing the leaf patterns larger than usual...

Printed on my canon inkjet - I was expecting the non pigment, non archival ink to shift, but it was fairly resistant. I continued to add more splurges of my own....

I think I will revisit this again... as the weather hopefully cools down a notch, 
I look forward to getting out and about some more.
