Gallery is now up and running with a simple header shot taken a few minutes ago - your entries better be superior to that effort!

Can the landscape include _____________ insects ? ...

I had in mind an impression of a full sized landscape but done with macro subjects - it would be feasible to include insects but would require great skill - that should make you try!
I wonder if the edge of a puddle could be made to look like the shore line - maybe some mist or a setting sun included ????
My guess is the winning entry will have used a tripod/filter.
