This is my first response to this week’s Photo Challenge ‘Beneath Your Feet’.
As I headed out, trusted camera in hand, I stared the ground. It’s parched just one day after some heavy rain. The sun glared down and I felt depressed. What could I show that is often beneath my feet that wouldn’t be washed out and flat? Well, I will show you this week.
First let me assure you that I stepped on none of these subjects. I walked very carefully looking for things to photograph. Second, this is one of my main admonitions to starting photographers. Don’t forget to look down at or beneath your feet. There is whole world waiting for you down there.
Nestled at the base of a stump in the back area of our property this jewel caught my eye.
