A Window to Life

I’ve not had much time to shoot the past week or two, so I forced myself to find something to shoot right when I got home.  Looked around my yard and driveway for a moment, and found this little clover struggling to find a foothold on some detritus smashed into the manhole cover in my driveway.  Somehow, even though it’s winter and it’s living on an iron lid, it seems to be surviving.

    Life is awesomely strong, isn’t it?

    There’s probably some heat rising from what ever that manhole cover is covering.
    If temperature is barely freezing some of those seem to stay free of snow.

    I think we can say that if there doesn’t seem to be anything to shoot you’re not looking accurately enough and need macro lens.
    In that scale many normal looking objects/surfaces look very different.
