You Capture - Get Down Low

Beth's You Capture challenge this week was to Get Down Low.  I like this challenge because it reminds me of how different everything looks from that 'way down low' perspective.

I started with one of this year's best hanging baskets.  (I got it for Mother's Day from Beth.)  Anyway, you'd never believe from this perspective that the most spectacular part of this basket is the red geraniums on top.

Next I explored how tall this bird house (that I got from my granddaughter) looks from 'way down low'.
And then I took a look across the water garden from ground level.

And while I was there I shot these birds.  They're so much cuter at eye level than they are when I'm looking down on them.

I went to the other side of the pond to see how it looked from ground level and here's what I saw.

And when I looked directly at the rocks surrounding the pond, I almost felt like I was back at the Garden of the Gods.
Finally I got down low to capture these rain chimes (a gift from my oldest daughter) and realized that it's much easier to look right up at the sun from such a low perspective.
So I put the sun behind me and it looked entirely different.
