Captivated in Crystal

captivated in crystal:

paths dividing, leading

into unknown futures;

a world of possibility,

captivated in crystal

On day 266 of 365 Days Wild I ventured out with my lens ball in hand to see what magical pictures I could capture. The woodland paths, pond and meadow all looked lovely captured in the crystal ball, especially as sunset approached, though my favourite subjects were the snowdrops.

Generally I like to turn lens ball pictures upside down, which focusses the viewer’s eye on the image in the crystal ball, rather than on the surroundings, but occasionally I prefer the picture to be left as taken. The set below contains a mixture of views. Which do you prefer?

I didn’t only take pictures through my lens ball while I was out. I also spent quite a while with the snowdrops.

I took a few pictures of the sunset as I walked home, as well.

Have you been out and about recently? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I’ve never seen a lens ball. Such creative possibilities. I kept strolling to choose one and eventually settled on the first snowdrops; however the one less close up with the ivy foreground was a strong contender

    1. They’re probably my two favourite pictures, as well. ๐Ÿ˜€ I first spotted a lens ball on Instagram a couple of years ago and was instantly fascinated. Thanks for visiting, Derrick.
