One photo a day challenge: Day 250. The sun had set on another day. But, it wasn’t dark out yet. Time to create some images. I was hoping to photograph some of our flowers. That is, if there was still enough light. The goal was to photograph the flowers without artificial light tonight. Using my Nikon 60mm macro lens. The f stop was set as wide as possible. Still a little too… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 249. Flowers have so many aspects that make them beautiful and interesting. The petals of a flower often play an important role in this. I really like flowers whose petals have an irregular look to them. Petals that seem to be randomly distributed. Even more interesting is when a flower has petals that are arranged in a more even and regular pattern, but there is an… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 239. When you are literally taking photos every day you use up battery power. Sometimes faster than one might think. I knew my main camera battery was going to need to be charged soon. Turns out soon meant tonight. I went outside tonight to take my daily photos. And the battery was dead., No problem I thought. This is why I have two camera bodies. I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 236. Feed Dogs. Run 3 miles. Eat Dinner. Now it is time for my daily photography challenge. It is dark outside now. Time to get out the artificial lighting. Thank you Lume Cube. Today I wanted to focus on a brightly colored flower against a dark background. This Yellow Hollyhock was just perfect for the job. I like this close up view of the petals. The… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 233. I really enjoy working with water as part of the subject matter. It’s possible to photograph the same thing over and over and the photo is never quite the same because the water always changes. Flowers after a rainstorm are a great example of that. I have photographed the same flowers repeatedly this year. But after every downpour the pattern of water droplets on the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 232. I headed outside to photograph some of the nature surrounding our house. I figured I would end up focusing on flowers. As I began photographing I didn’t really have a plan. Photographing a few flowers here and there randomly. Walking around the yard to see what was growing. What was nature up to. Flowers in bloom. And there were a bunch of caterpillars on our… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 230. Plants are quite amazing. Flower specifically are astounding. They grow in an incomprehensible array of shapes and sizes. Flowers take on all types of structures and forms. Flower colors touch every possible shade and hue of the visible light spectrum. If you can imagine it there is probably a flower that exists like it. I am kind of at a loss for words to describe… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 229. Today is a continuation of the recent theme for these posts. Focusing on the recent additions to our flower garden at home. These Osteo flowers are beautiful. They seem to change colors as they mature and blossom. I love the shallow depth of field. The small slice of the flower in the foreground that is completely in focus. Then there are three other flowers in… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 228. New flower day. Part I dunno at this point. The new flowers keep multiplying. I have no idea how that happened. But I still love having an ever changing selection of flowers to photograph. It is quite gloomy and overcast today. So I thought I would focus on the brightest of the newly arriving flowers. I trained my lens on this bright yellow False Sunflower…. Read More

One phot a day challenge: Day 227. So, some of my recent posts have talked about how I acquired some new flowers. And I have been trying to photograph a different flower from that new batch each day. Then share that new photos of the new flower on that day for this blog. I had been making progress on that. Not every day had featured one of those flowers but several had…. Read More
