The odd shot

I like this stuff, it's great when backlit, but boring from the other side... Don't know what it's called however.



Now here are a couple of odd and arty shots from today's lunchtime wander down the lane:



and finally, this grey enigma

Re: The odd shot

I like these Pete.
We have a native creeper in Oz just like No1 that we call "old mans beard".
I like the colour variations and textures in Nos 2 and 3.

I was also going to say Old Man's Beard, but I am botanically-challenged.

Re: The odd shot

Yep, it's one of the Clematis (common name Old Man's Beard), either alpina or macropetala species. They certainly make good backlit shots.

Martin there are so many of these, in the hedgerows, I thought they looked "like a Clematis" but could not be as "wild" ? But I did use to gather them for a home made "Pot Pourri" as they hold the "scents" well and look so interesting
