A daylily photo that was kind of “blah” until I added some background texture and and an edge vignette.

Backlit Glory   Leave a comment

Bright early morning light hit this morning-glory and created a beautiful blue glow.  I had to lie on my stomach with my camera and tripod about 6″ off the ground to capture it from underneath and behind.

Sneezing like crazy, but the dogwood photos are there for the taking.  From this morning in Lancaster City.

Lilies   Leave a comment

St. John’s Church on Chestnut Street has several pots of beautiful lilies outside and near the sidewalk.  The dark red brick is a nice backdrop, and I was fortunate to pass by when the lighting was very soft and indirect.

More Tulips   1 comment

Not a good morning for photography downtown.  The cold and dreary weather prevented anyone from hanging around Penn Square or Central Market.  Just half a block from our home, however, I stopped to photograph these tulips at the Catholic church.  The cloudy conditions helped in this case by casting a soft even light.  Maybe I’ll make a print for the nuns, for making this photo op possible!

Tulips   2 comments

The wind died down long enough this evening for me to capture a few tulip images in our backyard.  The cool evening air caused the blooms to close, which I kind of prefer over the wide-open look.  These are ‘soft focus’ photos because I set the aperture wide open and then decreased the clarity slider in Adobe Lightroom.

Spring Flower Time   Leave a comment

An early spring here in Pennsylvania, so I looked for a flower photo.  This one is a photo of a past-prime tulip from a few years ago.  Melanie had brought the potted plant indoors, where the backlighting from the kitchen window caught my attention.
