Here are a few macro photos I took of a yellow goat’s beard seed head, Tragopogon Pratensis (aka Meadow Salsify and Jack go to bed at noon) and a thistle. I loved the golden colours and the way the seeds shone in the sunlight.






They were taken with an Iphone 6S with in the in-phone camera. I decided not to edit them in any way as they are beautiful in their own right.

See Sally’s original post and links to other beautiful macro shots here.

Photo editing challenge: macro

I’ve used the cut out filter, then added the note paper filter and blended it at multiply. The frame is from Filter Forge.

You can see many different photo editings on this theme at Sonel’s corner.
