Bunches of Blue

Another of the backyard flowers that has burst into bloom is this wonderful Hydrangea.  I was looking at the multitude of flowers and noticing how there is quite a bit of variety in those big mop heads.  Besides the nice pastel blue that you see from a distance, there are also white and yellow hues mixed in and when you get closer you see how many different stages of blooming are here.

In this bundle, you can see flowers that are completely open, buds that are tightly closed and some interesting little star-burst stems which I assume will soon be covered with flowers also.  This is one more instance of how little we really see when viewing things from a distance and how much we miss if we don’t get in close.

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.
