There is so much visual information for us to process that it's easy to walk past the tiniest things without noticing them. When we do spot a hoverfly, a damselfly, or a glistening dewdrop it is difficult to appreciate the level of detail and beauty that exists in these things - the human eye is not really designed for that; we live in a much bigger world.
Macro photography changes all this and, although it is a technically challenging discipline, it is so absorbing that it is easy to become lost for hours at a time inside the incredible world that exists beyond our normal view.
"beyond our normal view" is a collection of 71 macro photographs, each captured during 2008. The photographs are arranged in four sections: diptera (flies and other two-winged insects), odanata & lepidoptera (damselflies and butterflies), other creatures (spiders, grasshoppers, toads, etc.) and dewdrops & ice.
