One thing I love about spring, summer, and fall is the way nature explodes with vibrant colors and the means she employs to display them. A flower’s intricacies fascinate me, even more so after I go back to review the pictures I take, for I always see something I hadn’t noticed before. After one particularly blissful afternoon with just my camera and me, I added two more items to my bucket list: 1) To learn the names of the plants I photograph and 2) buy myself a tripod. 🙂
At any rate, I pretty much covered the gamut of what the area offered that day.

Nature takes colors most of us would NEVER put together, with stunning results:
No photo crawl would be complete without a shot of branches against clouds and sky:
I found these white and yellow blossoms against vivid blue particularly stunning:
Wishing you all a great day and every happiness!
