Nature at its finest

August 29, 2010

Forgive me for sharing so many. I haven’t been able to do much on my computer as we’re having part of the house painted and I didn’t get this room back until Friday night. I’ve been playing catch up on my backlogged photos. 😉 Some of these are almost 2 weeks old though, as I don’t think I shared them at the time. I have so many and I just want to share! Not all are here so if you want to see more, they’re on Flickr.

I used a texture on this one, think it looks neat.

Thistles … been on a thistle kick lately, you’ll see more below . There’s a texture on this one too, not sure if it’s a good effect though

My friend wanted me to hang this in my bathroom (I need “art” in there). So it’s printed 11×14, waiting to be hung. I’m not a bee fan, but I like these bees better than the honeybees with the smaller stripes.

I like this one … not sure if it does anything for anyone else though 😉

Yes, another butterfly. Saw this on a walk too

My husband doesn’t like the bokeh (background blur) on this one at all.

So I cropped the next one to his liking (as he was watching me edit today). 😉

More flowers from the same gardens (I was without my kids so I stopped with my camera to get these plus the roses above)

Took my kids to a park on Friday (you’ll see pictures of them later when I have time to work on them), and got these two butterflies.

The next few are from our family walk last night … I’m really happy with this flower capture – I only took one, and it turned out. 😉

Sunburst with a metal texture … I’m liking it, do you?

I was trying to catch the plane flying near the sun but couldn’t get my camera set up in time. At least it’s in the frame … it’s in the top right, you’ll have to look hard for it

This once majestic weeping willow tree is nothing but a skeleton now … reflected in the growth-filled pond

And more thistles …

The End. 😉 Thanks for looking!

    Beautiful Gwen. I absolutely LOVE spending time photographing nature – and especially butterflies and flowers. Your shots are beautiful – love the experimentation with textures. And those sunbursts are fantastic! I especially love the blue butterfly on the red flower.

    That single pink rose and first butterfly shots are my FAVS! You truly are getting better and better with each session…your nature captures are truly inspiring!
