I love playing around with macro images of flowers. And I think Cyclamen blossoms lend themselves to this, with their curved lines and interesting shapes. What do you think???
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?
Of course I decided to use some camera movement and see what I could get while I was visiting Monet’s gardens. I generally like this technique (as you know if you’ve seen my posts in the past)! I think it works particularly well with a colorful subject such as this. What do you think?
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!
It always surprises me how beautiful Central Park is! I suppose since it’s in the middle of a bustling city, my expectations for beauty are low. But if you really walk through, there are so many pretty spots and gorgeous backgrounds. These images are from my walk through the park last week. Lots of trees and early spring plants were just starting to bloom. I’m looking forward to going back!
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!
