Alien Landscapes

I'm finding that close-up photography is more and more my niche interest. I've always loved taking shots at the macro level, except that with the equipment I had been using, I could never really pull it off, and true macro lenses seemed to be out of my price reach. Then I discovered close-up filters....
On the mornings that I walk the dog in the park, I always have my camera with me now. I'm still learning the ropes, and the flowers and the bugs make for great subjects. What's amazing is how such mundane and ordinarily overlooked weeds and such suddenly appear so alien under magnified lenses.
