Stripes - Green - Stripes

We've all be getting a bit stir crazy being stuck indoors what with all these bank holidays and the bad weather so as the sun finally made an appearance today we thought we'd head out to the lakes for a walk.
I was on the look out for some stripey leaves but it was mainly laurel and holly that we saw today, I found these at the very end of our walk. I love the way that you can see the stripes in all the leaves even those in the background.
Other than the holly and laurel bushes I wasn't really expecting to see much green today but I did spy this tiny fern growing on a tree stump which did add a splash of colour to the brown surroundings.

And finally I took a picture of Tompom wearing his fab stripey hat, I cropped this so you can just see his eye peeping out at you as for some reason he wanted to hide behind his gloves for this shot.

January Photo Challenge

Happy New Year to you all, the latter part of 2010 was very hectic hence not much blogging took place here at Depth of Field. One of my aims for this coming year is to blog regularly, another is to get to know my camera properly, improve my knowledge of photography and take more pictures!!!

So what better way than to join in the latest FB photo challenge, this list was compiled by Joy.
I love close up photography so can't wait to get snapping. As for the exercise one I don't think there will be any glimpses of me in lycra unless they have been edited first!!! Perhaps I'll stick to photos of others exercising.
The hobby one will obviously include some of my own crafty makes and as my favourite colour is green that shouldn't be a problem either.
If any of you would like to join in the January Challenge let me know.
