A lens ball is a clear, normally glass sphere. Not optically perfect, but enough to produce an array of photographic opportunities.

A lens ball is typically made of glass and far from optically perfect - but it does make for some unusual points of view. The image here is Fairy Falls in north Wales, inverted by the ball and held aloft to create a globe type effect

Near Treaddur you will find these standing stones. The lensball adds a dose of the unusual to these stones which are believed to go back over somewhere around 2,000 BC.

Near Treaddur you will find the standing stones of Penrhos Feilw. I've concentrated on one here - with the sunlight directly behind it creating a natural light halo. The other stone is clearly visible in the lens ball.

I found this rather lovely, serene buddha in a local garden and added the lens ball to him. Composite from 2 of my original images. Also available as a version without the lensball.
