Close up on na­ture

The Queensland Times - - LIFE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS -

IT TAKES just min­utes to play, but the fascination of find­ing hid­den ob­jects on a hike is fun and a great way to take a closer look at na­ture.

One hiker takes a cam­era or smart­phone and walks ahead on the track and takes a su­per close-up photo of part of an ob­ject, eg a mush­room or a knot in a tree. Don’t take a pic­ture of the en­tire ob­ject, it will be too easy to find.

When the rest of the group catches up, the pho­tog­ra­pher shows them the pic­ture, de­fines a small 10m by 10m area – and then it’s a race to see who can find the ob­ject first!
