One photo a day challenge: Day 262. I have used my macro lens so much this year. It has been so much fun. If you love photography and do not have a macro lens, I highly recommend one. There are so many fun and interesting things to do with them. Today I stumbled across this grasshopper just sitting on the fence. The grasshopper stayed there as I was putting away our garden… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 259. Today I set out with my macro lens. I walked along the edge of a field with bushes. I was looking at the leaves and flowers. Finding subjects to photograph. I began to notice all the pollinators moving amongst the flowers. There were bees, hornets, wasps, and a cool looking beetle. The bees were moving too fast. It was challenging to compose and image and… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 256. As is often the case, I had no particular plan for my daily photography practice. As evening set in a rain storm also settled in. I have mentioned countless times that one of the best things about rain is photographing flowers after the rains. I looked outside. Then I felt outside. Is it still raining. No. No it is not. I gathered my gear. Nikon… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 253. I often set out to create photos with something in mind to photograph. But I am always hoping that something at least a little unexpected will happen. There are some things you can plan for and some things that you can’t. The best you can do is hope fore the opportunity to arise. Then you have to be prepared to take advantage of the situation….

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 248. I was out surveying the yard. Looking for photography subjects. Photographing various plant life. Using my macro lens. I eventually made a circuit of our back yard. I settled in to photograph the cluster of pink phlox that have been growing there for years now. I photographed different compositions of the phlox flowers growing there. Single blossoms and groups of flowers. Then I noticed this… Read More

It is so fun to see that even after all season I still have flowers just blooming now. So now that I turn my focus back to the flowers at home I see a plant that is now finally come to its time of year… Read More

One phot a day challenge: Day 238. When you plant something in a pot early in the year and it finally blooms!!! To Everyone else this probably looks a lot like if not identical to the flowers I have posted before. But this is a totally new flower photo. I have posted photos of this plant previously, but it never had flowers before. It may have had tiny little buds, but they… 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
