Werner Bollmann - Small World


Wet places on clearcuttings in the north are sometimes covered with carpets of haircap moss. When you lie on the ground for a while, you suddenly discover a whole world en miniature: There are hills and valleys, forests and meadows. It’s great fun and even a little adventure to explore this foreign world with the camera – welcome to Liliput!

    This is amazing. It's like a microcosm of moss soldiers. Love the colour and the technique.

    It looks like a yellow forest, made with fire... very curious!

    The essence of macro photography is discovering new worlds. You managed to do that, nice picture.

    Capturing something small and showing it in large format is half the victory in macro photography. The other half is nailing the composition and really creating a photo with a story. You have done great on both fronts.
