Alien Landscapes

I originally started experimenting with macro photography simply because it was the only way to get my inexpensive camera to create pictures with a shallow depth of field. However, I discovered that taking close up pictures can totally change the way you percieve the thing you're looking at. I took these pictures a couple of years ago while walking through a wooded area along the outskirts of my home town. By looking close up at moss and other things growing on the rocks and fallen trees, I discovered an alien landscape out of some science fiction movie.
