Nature, Photography

World A-Bloom

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.

From delicate hues to bold and bright::

These pine cones have an almost ethereal glow:

Farther down the trail I spied a nest amid foliage I had never seen before.  I snapped the picture and then moved in for a closer look.

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!
