The Back Braes

My wife, Susan, is doing a herbology course, and has identified a path called Back Braes behind our house for study. So, we both spent some time there this morning, she taking colour shots on her phone, I getting to know the subtleties and otherwise of a green filter on the lens of my Q2M. In no particular order...

1. Starship Enterprise?

It was an enjoyable jaunt, and I really engaged with the green filter, which I've never really used much before. I used a yellow filter for three months - getting to know it well - and now I might do a similar length of time with the green filter before moving onto the orange and red. The year of the filters!

That is a fine and varied set, so many different things to see in one path.
Really like 2, the way the light catches the drops of water is great.
Yes, Chris, I believe it is, though I’ve never been good at identifying plants and flowers. It certainly has bramble-like features.

Glad you like them, Dave. I think number 2 is definitely called a leaf :rolleyes:
