Beauty within... by kayaksailor Beauty within... by kayaksailor
The view off my deck captured in the less than 1" top to an antique oil cruet of my Great Aunt's from the early 1900's. The glass is so old it has begun to purple :heart:...taken in natural daylight from the window, hand-held with a 60mm 2.8 macro lens.

lovely picture, nice idea - and I can see your landscape, if I turn my head. Great view!
I like the contrast between sharpness of glass and softness of the surrounding - and this being reproduced very defined in the plug.

Great example of refraction of a landscape and sky. Did you polish the ball on the cruet stopper first ;-)
