Our a recent walk along the lake path, I had plans to take my DSLR along. However, there was rain in the forecast and given we wanted to walk spiritedly, I changed my mind and took my Pentax Optio W-90, compact camera. Well, it is waterproof, shockproof, etc.
Towards the tail-end of the first half of our walk, I found 'a tree' on which I found some deposits of gum. No, no - not the yucky chewing gum that gets discarded carelessly, but resin/gum. Well, I told my wife that I will catch up with her and started shooting.
I knew they were beautiful formations, but I didn't know I could capture them as well as I managed to, using the fixed focus Pentax.
This particular Pentax has two macro modes; a 'Flower Mode', and a '1mm mode'. I took may of these pictures using the 1mm mode.
For some reason, I am reminded of the movie Jurassic Park. And, yes, I mean the very first one, by Spielberg.
