Iwent on a treasure hunt round my home in Kinlochbervie. I found diamonds, an ivory bowl, a silver ingot, a ruby ear pendant, a painting by Monet, a grotesque brooch, ancient armour, Dutch lace, a bronze shield, carved jade, cloth of gold, silk ribbons, bells by Fabergé, ecclesiastical accoutrements and cascades o’ doubloons.

See if you can work out which is which!

(For those interested in the technical background, most of the pictures were taken with an Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro lens on my Olympus E-M1 II using its focus stacking capability.)
