Una vista muy interesante. Parece un paisaje en miniatura.
Me gusta el punto de vista y las texturas y colores capturados. Veo que ya le vas cogiendo el tranganillo (como decimos aqui) a la lente helios, tanto en esta como en las anterioes fotos que me perdi. Buen trabajo!
PD: me temo que el traductor tambien tradujo la direccion web que nos sugieres. Tuve que cambiarla para poder ver la ficha de info jardin. Saludos.

Hola Hernan,
La superfice de este palo sólo lo parece tras leer la nota. Podría ser hasta la piel de un dinosaurio. Una foto original y llamativa.
Un saludo, José M.

Otra acierto Hernan, con una excelente imagen jamás imaginada por mi.
Viendolo de esta manera, me recuerda a algun paisaje de otro mundo que he visto en algún libro de ficción.
El foco capturó las puas centrales, no así con la mayoría de las que se aprecian en la foto en la parte posterior de la misma, pero imagino que es el efecto que buscaste para esta presentación.
Excelente idea... sin dudas.
Saludos... Ricardo

.... mañana

Hi there Hernán, yes, this is a very prickly plant. And what a lot of lichen and extra bits it has growing on it. Good display, TFS

very nice and original. Ori

Hello Hernan
Your notes are very interesting, I've never seen a tree like this before.
Your image is sharp and the lighting is soft and brings out the detail of these thorns. The lichens growing on the thorns is very interesting too.
