It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powered gold over the grassy hillside. – Maude Hart Lovelace
Despite the volume of rain we got last week, I did manage to get outside with the camera and practice a bit more! I am looking at things differently as I contemplate images. I am learning lots from Carole and Vicki and I am so thankful to them and their brilliant photos that inspire me to get better!
I think early morning photos after it rained might be my favorite thing of all and the light is wonderful! This waning rose turned out wonderfully – not perfect, but I really love the image. Rosy reds are so hard to photograph, but early morning light gives the best possible conditions to try – and try I did!
I also love the “surprises” I get when taking photos. These tomato blossoms are a perfect example of that with the fly in from a mosquito! I am glad her attention was focused elsewhere and not on me!
Finally, this little zinnia (I think? I am not sure, Steve’s mom gave us some “left over plants” she was not going to use) Anyways, the color is so wonderful and I love how it turned out – although trying to focus on something so low to the ground was a challenge.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your week will be full of good things!
