Beauty in nature always inspires me to worship.

The pictures leave a lot to be desired but the flowers were fantastic. It was mainly an experiment in backlighting with a white background. How to get this effect? Get some white baking paper and tape it to the window and floor and then get your partner to lie on the floor in an awkward position holding the stem through a hole in the back of the paper while you repeatedly tell them to stop moving!

Here is another wild poppy but nothing fancy done with the picture. The Creator is amazing (IMO)!

Foto tip for flowers - Often the best light is on a bright cloudy day, though you can create your own shade with an umbrella. Be very careful with the background to keep it simple and unfussy so it does not distract. I didn't quite get things right here but I'm still learning.

Nice! Not weeds at all. Not the way YOU see them.

Sounds like Susan gets a prize for these photos as well. Only her reward is in heaven!

Ok .. Adrian .. please go easy on introducing things like this .. I "was" happy with my butterflies .. really was and now ... you do this. LOL!

Those weeds are very very nice .... and like the backlighting effects .... could I borrow Susan this weekend ... would like to give it a try. Will furnish mosquito spray .. large industrial strength version.

You do excellent work but God gets the credit for the subject matter .. you had very good material to start with!!! I think that is the reason I am enjoying photography so much. Before it was all about money and now it is about showing what God has done as well as I possibly can.

I love the old gnarly tree behind the cacti. It is worthy of a picture by itself.

I thought the first picture of the poppy was a watercolor painting. It is a very nice effect.

Yeah .. that old tree is probably older than you or I Ron ... Aaron got a good shot .... like cactus flowers.

Those are beautiful. You really got the close up macro thing down.
What camera do you use?

I have weeds and orphans.
http://mackhoover.home.bresnan.net/plantpics/2roses1.JPG

This is an orphan. It's been transplanted a few times and for some reason the graft we thought had died grew this time. The host plant is the red which is always crowded with the red. This one lonely peach colored hybrid is called Brandy according to my sister from whose garden I did the first transplant.

Thankyou very much.
Yup! We eat 'em all the time when they come out. They're very good, but kind of tart. :) :P

I do believe that looks a mite like oxalis or sorrel. Very similar if not the same as the shamrock. It is sour tasting but I liked to nibble on it as a kid.
I ain't dead yet. I don't know if Yule Gibbons ever tried it.

Sure is purty though!

OH good grief. *much embarrassment*. Sorry. I didn't mean sorrow. HAHA :oops: :P I guess it's the southern way to say it...
