Reed-Turner Woodland Photographic Project - Texture
From a distance, nature appears random. Streams meander, seeds are haphazardly scattered by the wind, forests have no symmetry and wildflowers pop-up at will. But upon closer inspection, patterns and wondrous textures emerge.

The points on an oak leaf, moss on a stump, frost on a blade of grass, the bark of a tree, or the sphere of a dandelion gone to seed are all versions of nature’s mosaic of geometric balance. Through a magnifying glass or a macro lens on a camera, what at first appears chaotic may show itself to have a highly structured, almost mathematical quality. These miniature worlds are ones of great beauty, endless exploration and utter fascination.
