Beauty and a Beast

Sedum, Flowers, Pink, Grasshopper
The delicate beauty of these sedum blossoms provide a stark contrast to the uninviting demeanor of a grasshopper who found a late summer resting spot.

My photography typically focuses on the beauty of nature. I’m sure many would not find the grasshopper to be “beautiful,” but I think it is.  I find the structure and patterns in the design of this creature a work of beauty.  Again, a contrast to the “pretty” of the flowers but a very cool and interesting subject.

Grasshoppers are insects and are probably the oldest living group of chewing herbivorous. I imagine this one has found a pleasant, final resting place.

Morning Rolls In

Lighthouse, Sunrise, Lake Michigan, Waves, Morning, Kewaunee
The waves were rolling in, just before the sun was to rise over Lake Michigan.  I captured this view of the lighthouse and pier from the beach at Kewaunee, Wisconsin.

Most mornings the lake is calm, but recent windy conditions kicked up a bit of surf. This was taken last Sunday morning.

Softly and Tenderly

Macro, Rose, Pink, Soft, Color, Flower Photo, Beautiful
There is something about the delicate furl and opening of rose petals that draws the viewer in. Doesn’t this image make you want to get closer to smell its intoxicating fragrance?

This is a flower I found on a trip to Branson, MO a couple of years ago.  It was in a small flowerbed, next to the parking lot, at a motel we spent the night at.  You never know where you will find beauty to behold…and capture…so keep your camera close by.

Bright Idea

Azalea, Flower, Macro, Pink, Yellow, Close Up,
This azalea was one of the more colorful and prolific bloomers in my wife’s flower bed this year.

I enjoy getting a close up view of flowers (and other things) to see the details that we often don’t notice in a normal view.

Hanging Hearts


Bleeding Hearts, Flowers, Stem, Dew, Drops, Pink, Garden
It’s not difficult to understand the thinking behind the common name of this garden favorite – bleeding heart. Its heart-shape pink or white blooms with a protruding tip make it a logical choice.

Bleeding hearts are a species of flowering plant in the poppy family. These bleeding hearts are from ,my wife’s flowerbed near our house.

Captivating Beauty

Rose, Pink, Beautiful, Lovely,
This rose may be one of the most beautiful flowers I’ve ever photographed. It is not perfect or without blemish, but there’s something about its soft blush of pink and the gentle furl of its delicate petals that captivates me; makes it difficult to look away. I snapped a lot of frames of this bloom over a couple of days. (Please excuse my gushing. I understand, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may not have the same effect on everyone.)

I found this beauty in, of all places, the small flowerbed of a motel in Branson, Missouri – the Yellow Rose Inn & Suites. They had a nice variety of blooming flowers around the property but, ironically, there were no yellow roses.

April Awakening

Sunrise, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, WI, Lake Michigan, Yellow
A very calming morning scene on Lake Michigan as the sun prepares to rise behind the lighthouse and pier at Kewaunee, Wisconsin. This morning’s sun has a “tell” for exactly where it will breach the horizon. That little pink area to the right of the lighthouse is marking the spot where the sun will appear.

Soft Allure

Flower, Purple, Garden, Pink
I was early for an appointment. While waiting, I pulled out my camera and snapped a few photos of the flowers in a flowerbed outside the meeting location.

This is why I advise photographers to keep their cameras close by. You never know when a photographic opportunity will present itself. You won’t be able to take advantage of an opportunity every time it arrives – I’m always seeing scenes I wish I could pause to capture. So, often circumstances don’t allow it, but occasionally they will. If you don’t have your camera with you, you will always miss it.
