Purple power

Little flowers can pack a big punch when they are a vibrant color like this.  The Chattahoochee Nature Center is full of plantings that include small flowers like this. Individually,  they would hardly be noticeable but in groups they really are eye-catching.

I didn’t bring my macro lens on this visit but, I probably should next time.  It is always amazing to look at the detail of things and I kind of think the center of this flower-head is as cool as the open flowers.  Nature is wonderful!

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.
