Sweet gum ball... by thewatersphotos

Sweet gum ball...

We have a huge Sweet Gum tree along the fence row on our property. It "rains" balls on the path we walk every day.
Beautiful dof! My in-laws had two of these trees in their front yard, and they used to send their young grandchildren outside with large paper bags to gather these balls. They paid the kids a penny for each ball collected. :)

These look like a version of our pine cones. Very nice POV

Very nice detail and DOF. I hope you don't walk around bare foot!

Good shot. My son recently had a sweet gum in his back yard that he detested.

They're really interessting to study - Jerik likes to send them down the slide - we have bunches around here.

What a gorgeous spiky seed head. I bet they are a bit uncomfortable if they land on your head though!

Great shot, love all the colours

I like the complimenting colours in this and the sharpness of the seed pod. Very nice shot.

@dora Oh, we have pine cones but this is from a very different deciduous tree. Like the pine cone they are very sticky!

@theredcamera Thank you! No, we don't, Ellen! At least not around this tree. :- )
