Ropey Macro-Fibre Challenge Rolled Out

February 25th, 2021
Many thanks to JennieB @jb030958 for hosting the lovely heart macro challenge, to all who entered and those who took part in the voting.

It is my pleasure and honour to host this macro-challenge and the topic I have chosen is FIBRE. A fibre as in a thread, some yarn, a rope, or string (not the fibre that keeps you 'regular!')

Your fibre is o be free, not made up into a completed item (so not a stitch or a garment), but is loose or in a skein, loop, knot or ball waiting to be used.

A macro shot doesn't have to be taken with a macro lens, any photo that makes your fibre look large and the star of the photo is ideal.

For tips on macro phototgraphy DPS is a great starting point for newcomers to this challenge. Google images also has some great examples if you Google 'macro-yarn'

Tag your photograph macro-fibre (do please note UK spelling!)
