Gerbera side-view

Gerbera daisies are frequently displayed in gardens, cut arrangements and photographic images.  The are large and showy and have lots of color and detail but I decided to do this capture of a lovely red specimine from the side.  I really liked the intricate patterns of the base of the flower and the tiny white hairs on the stem.  I included a back-lit leaf as a backdrop to give the image another layer of contrast and detail.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
