The Devil is in there
The devil, and the lizard, is in the details as the saying goes. I caught that one above amongst the rocks outside Port Royal des Champs Abbey in the South West of Paris a few years back. One really has to focus to catch a glimpse of the ’beast’.
More recently, last weekend in fact, I took this picture of Richard Orlinski’s red croc outside the Chateau de Chamarande. The play between the two complementary colours (red and green) is obviously accentuated in this shot.
A few minutes later we were having a nap below a tree in the park and I looked up and saw that beautiful old tree and took a shot with my 35mm fixed lens. You can see all the details in the treetops.
This close up is that of a tractor’s wheel in the Alps, shot barely a month ago.
