Mindfully exploring nature

Morning coffee in the sun

The morning sun in the kitchen is just lovely, and some afternoons I am perched with my coffee up on the roof. Finally the wind has died down, it’s getting warmer outside and things are starting to bloom. As nature begins to awaken I grab my camera + macro lens and head outside.

As I explore nature through my camera I find that I slow down and get more mindful. It’s a great way to hone in on the beautiful details of nature with all its colors, textures and shapes. Moving in closer while feeling safe behind a lens has also helped me approach insects and get over some of my fear that I’ve had for them.

I am constantly amazed at how photography as a tool lets you explore the world, see it in a new light and become more aware of your surroundings!

    Supervackert. Det är så himla fint med makrofotografi, men jag har aldrig hållt på med det. Blir direkt sugen på att börja dock, krypa runt i rabatten och så.

    1. Tack! Har Heller aldrig gjort det speciellt mycket förut men det är himla roligt, en ny dimension av naturen man så ofta är i :) Kan varmt rekommenderas!
