I actually did not take this photograph as I am in it. However, I could not resist posting this on my PeacemakersArt blog. My friend’s dog “Max” has a habit of jumping onto the dog park fence to watch prairie dogs in the surrounding area in Boulder. So, I started the habit of joining “Max” – shoulder to shoulder in a special bonding experience. Actually, all of my doggie friends thought this site was hilarious and I am grateful to my friend, Stan, for capturing this magical moment. As Stan shared with me, I still have an inch or two on Max in height. So, I am indeed grateful. However, notice that my beloved Nikki did not have the same interest. Enjoy!
This simply is a picture of elegance to me. The softness and delicate color identifies spring and the new abundance of summer. This particular photograph, and the below flower series, were taken with a macro lens which allows great depth of field with flower close-ups. It highlights the detail of the flower – and almost its soul essence. For me, nature photography reminds me of the spiritual nature of being.
Here we have a wildflower called “beargrass” which was located in Glacier National Park in Montana. Sometimes good composition is best conveyed with a series of images as this “trio” suggests balance and depth of field for the viewer.
Nature photography is at its best during spring and summer. All colors are vibrant and the family of flowers reflect a special peace for us to behold.
