The flowers on a Cyclamen are some of my favorite photographic subjects! Their beautiful petals create appealing curved lines and their almost upside down blossoms make for interesting images. What do you think?
A few more shots from yesterday’s rainy morning that I thought would look good processed in black and white. I just love the way the water drops stand up on the edges of the petals. If you look closely it’s amazing what you can see.
Have you ever lost your motivation? I haven’t been posting or really taking many pictures lately, but today I decided to get out and shoot some images. It’s a rainy morning, but I decided to venture out and look around for something to catch my eye. Rain drops can be so interesting and pretty, especially when they reflect something. I was happy looking around for small droplets on my plants to focus on. Below are some fall-blooming daisies covered in rain drops. These are exactly as I found them in my garden. I hope you enjoy them!
I received some beautiful peach-colored roses last week as a thank-you for volunteering. Their gorgeous curved edges inspired me to take some up-close shots of them. Aren’t they so pretty?
It was a thrill to be able to visit Monet’s home at Giverny and view the amazing gardens there. As expected, the gardens are lush and beautiful with flowers blooming everywhere. There are two sections of the property, the area near his home and another area across the road, with the pond and the famous water lilies. Here are some shots of the gorgeous gardens in front of the house. I could have stayed there shooting for days!
I tried playing around with some images I took of a cyclamen plant. It was something different for cold, a dreary winter with not much motivating me to get out and photograph. What do you think?
These crisp, damp mornings create lots of dew, which is always interesting to photograph. After donning my rain boots, I can venture out and see what my macro lens finds. Enjoy the fall!
So yes, I can’t help taking pictures of flowers! Shooting pictures and editing to look just right is so enjoyable to me. I love deciding which shots to take, what composition looks good and what and background works, especially the sharp flower with the soft background. That is my favorite. What is yours??
Motivation hasn’t come my way lately as far as photography goes! I need to get myself outdoors with my camera. Here are some shots just from my gardens. Flowers are some of my favorite subjects, but I need to challenge myself a little more. Anyone want to go on a photography expedition?? 🙂
It was a gorgeous weekend in New England with deep blue skies and colorful blossoms popping up all around. I couldn’t resist a few more shots of what’s blooming in my yard. The colors and variety of flowers during spring are so inspiring!
