Flowers and sunshine

One of the things I really like about the Chattahoochee Nature Center is the way they have landscaped.  There are many different flowering plants around the walkways all done in somewhat wild and natural plantings.  I know that lots of work and thought went into this but it gives you the impression that you are walking through a patch of wildflowers in the wilderness.

I didn’t see a marker to tell me what kind of flower this is.  It looks similar to a sunflower but was certainly much smaller than the kind that produce all those seeds that people eat.  It was just open there like a burst of sunshine but hanging it’s head down toward the ground.  I really liked the pink flowers behind it and the rather washed-out white background that the bright sun gave this scene.

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.
