Portals Exhibition: Endless patterns

Night photography allows me to make some unusual images.  I lit the forest path below Dassie Krantz with three lights and, by chance, there appeared a blue phosphorescent effect on the thorn tree.  Mirroring then gave me this lovely blue portal.

Further along the path you have to bend double to get through a really dense tangle of creepers.  It took me an hour of experimenting to get this picture.  Placing the lights was very tricky and I did a lot of crawling under the creepers!

Tangle of creepers

I did the usual mirroring to get a richly textured, dramatic image but then I realized that duplicating and offsetting it would give an endless weaving pattern.  I was surprised and very pleased with the result.
