In photography, sometimes lighting is everything.

This is simple Queen Anne’s Lace. It is just beginning to open up to that flat base of tiny white flowers.

The lighting and color of the background are what make this a worthwhile post. The light was provided by a rising sun. The background is a simple concrete wall – the foundation of our home.

This kind of lighting is why the times around sunrise and sunset are called the “Golden Hour” in photography.

This is an example of unusual light creating an unusually lovely image. This sparse bunch of Phlox were being illuminated by the muted light of very low sun in the early morning.

There were Phlox bunches filled with many more blooms, but the cool color of these few caught my eye.

Bold and Beautiful (monochrome)

Sometimes I like taking a favorite color photo and removing the color – making it monochrome – to see how the change affects the image.  There are times when the B&W version is better…and times when it is not.  This is a monochrome version of Bold and Beautiful.  You can look and both and decide which you like better – color or B&W.  I like aspects of both and would call this one a toss up.

These bold, big-as-all-outdoors flowers remind me of purple cone flowers. I’m not sure they are cone flowers because the petals don’t slope downward. I’m not an expert, I just appreciate the beauty.

These beauties were photographed in the center of the circular entrance to the Kraft Building at the Green Lake Conference Center, Green Lake, Wisconsin.

“Thou unassuming Commonplace Of Nature.” ~ William Wordsworth

This has been a banner year for daisies in our yard.  They seem to be popping up everywhere.  It’s also been a good year for the orange hawk weed you see in the background.

By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower. ~ Rabindranath Tagore

This is one of the first poppies to bloom and fade in our spring garden.  I applied a texture to the image.  To me, it didn’t seem right to gaze upon its unfiltered demise.

Poppy’s Purple Passion


This time of year you’ll see me post a lot of flowers.  After the long winter, they are hard to resist.

This is a close -up of the very first Poppy to pop in Sara’s flower bed.  I took the photo two days ago and it’s already gone – the victim of a strong breeze.  However, there are several others that have taken it’s place.

Poppies are some of our favorites.  I suspect I’ll post more before the blooming is done.
