This week’s Photo Challenge is about changing the perspective of shooting a subject. Instead of taking a photo from the usual angle (front of, to the side or from behind), take a shot from directly above.
As usual, I wanted to feature a different interpretation of the theme. I was searching for photos I took directly from above. There were many but mostly landscapes shot which I have already featured in my past posts.
I decided to feature macro shots taken directly from above just to give the theme a different perspective.
One of the rare delights of hiking Table Mountain is the abundance of wild flowering shrubs.
Different varieties of species are found on top of the mountain some of which are so tiny that you tend to miss them if you do not stop and look at them closely.
So instead of just taking landscape photos from above the mountain, stop for a moment and look around you. You will find interesting species that are mostly diverse in the world.
On the way to the Cape Peninsula, through Muizenberg, you will see a long stretch of beaches with white fine sands that are mainly covered with mussel shells thrown up by the ocean.
Here are some tight shots of empty mussel shells on the beach taken from above.
