White Rose

Haha! I bet you thought I was going to post an underwater shot, didn’t you? Not today!

I love the beauty of our planet and here’s another shot that I’ll be displaying at my first show of the season in two weeks. It’s really quite dramatic printed on metal!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Admiration

Sunny Face

Sunny Face

I admire nature in all of her glory. Flowers never cease to amaze me in their complexity and colors. I’m working on a new series of flowers for the upcoming art show season and this sunflower is a piece I shot just last week. She will be printed on metal and available for purchase at my first show – The French Nest Market in Fort Collins, Colorado on May 21st.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Fresh

Fresh Flower

I’m late to the party this week. Peter and I were up skiing for our last trip of the season. It was so great at Breckenridge yesterday that we stayed all day and got home late. Anyhoo…here’s my offering for this week’s challenge.

I had some time in the studio last week so I was delighted when I saw the word “Fresh!” For those photographers out there – this photo was shot with a Lensbaby Composer Pro using the Sweet 50 optic and the macro converters on my Nikon D600. I LOOOOVE these lenses. They allow me to move the sweet spot of focus around on the frame instead of just in the center and this wonderful company out of Oregon has created an amazing array of optics that are interchangeable with the Composer Pro. I also have a Composer Pro for my Olympus micro four thirds camera and I can use my optics on either camera. Check it out: Lensbaby.com Warning: these things can be addictive! Also just to tease you some more, they have created a lens for your cell phone. I haven’t played with it much yet, but I’m enjoying the effects that I’m getting.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Symmetry

Daffodil

Daffodil

I haven’t posted a flower shot in a long time, and I don’t usually photograph symmetrical subjects symmetrically. But since this daffodil is a symmetrical flower, I decided to share its portrait for the challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Spring

Daffodil

Daffodil

To me, nothing says Spring better than the wonderful color and feel of emerging spring bulbs. Daffodils display the color of the sun – and its return to the south after a long winter.
