All Rise

I love the beautiful colors of summer flowers especially when the sun shines through the petals as in this image.  The only challenge here is finding a balance of the light that will keep the beautiful detail of the petals and the center of the flower and still show that great back light coming through.  A tight shot on the eye of the flower helped me control the hot white of the sun.

It’s also an interesting process trying to capture these flowers that only stick around for a day or so.  Have to get it today since it will be on the way out if you wait.   I’m glad that these beauties have lots of blooms so I can enjoy them for more than a few days.  One of the great pleasures of Summer!

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.
