There is something about this image that captivates me. I’d like to say it was taken in some exotic location, but it wasn’t. It is the center of a poppy from the flower bed beside our home.
Of course, it’s the rich, deep red of the petals that initially grab me. However, it’s the purple center, ringed by the dark seeds, that keep me staring.
I realize this is one of those images that either trips your trigger…or not. Feel free to leave a comment, either way.

This is an appropriate image to bid Autumn farewell. Even though this may have been the tiniest tree in the forest, it was determined to put on a striking display of fall color. I’m amazed this twig of a tree, with just two large leaves, even made it to fall.
This photo was taken a few years ago. Busy schedules and weather worked against my plans to grab some great fall images this year…and last year. I see the autumn colors and think, I’ll have to get out and take some photos – and then weather turns bad, strong winds come in, and the trees loose all that beauty. Well, maybe next year.

Just another stunning sunset at our rural Kewaunee County, WI home. I snapped this a few minutes after the sun dipped below the horizon on Tuesday, May 17, 2011.
I took these with my Sony SLT-A55. I used the “sunset” setting on the above photo. The photo below was taken using the “sweep panorama” mode.
