Pink Hyacinth

OK, so there are a few spring flowers blooming.  I captured this beautiful pink hyacinth on my walk around Smith Plantation on Sunday.  I love this kind of flower that is a bundle of mini-blooms which from a distance look like one big blossom.  The closer you get, the more you appreciate the individual flowers.

As I continue to explore the macro world, I am constantly amazed at the intricate shapes that make up small things.  The colors and curves that make each of these little flowers are a wonder to look at and make me appreciate the fantastic variety that is here in the world around us.  Whether it is vast landscapes or tiny microcosms, God’s handiwork is awesome!

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.
