Many interesting photographic patterns can be found in nature.
Interesting nature patterns can be discovered by getting extremely close to objects such as leaves, flowers etc., to see the close up structure and texture of the objects. We have an interesting article in our Principals section found on the right hand side on macro photography.
A close up lens such as a macro or micro lens can be very useful for getting close. Also interesting patterns can be obtained by using strong side lighting to emphasise the texture of the object.
An example of a close up of a leaf is shown above.
Sometimes extreme cloud patterns, particularly late in the day, when the sun is very low in the sky can form interesting patterns with nice textures.
An examples of a sunset pattern with the sun low in the sky is shown below.
