The circle is one of the most common forms of nature.It has a powerful, yet gentle, effect in any angle or view. The circle comes in a variety of forms, colors and designs found among living things, on the landscape and in the microscopic world. Photography makes us better appreciate and enjoy Nature's art by exploring the many applications of the circle and radial symmetry. Here are some examples I personally encountered with the camera.


Midday sun

Halo of sun around windmill, Bangui, Ilocos Norte

Palm (Livistona or anahaw)
Spent Nymphaea leaf

Next time you go out on a photography session, be observant with Nature's art. In another lesson, I'll take you to another form - the square and the triangle and their variations.
