Be still my bleeding heart...

Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and my God!

Ps. 42:5

Roadside Wildflower

A few weeks ago as I was driving a "back road" to pick up milk from a local farm I saw these white wildflowers growing on the banks of the road. So about a week later as I was making the same drive again, I stopped and pulled out my camera and tripod. I'm not sure what these little flowers are, so if anyone has an identification that would be great. Have a wonderful week!

Grape Hyacinth Bell

It's been a bit of a crazy end to the week. Here is a macro focusing on the small bell flowers of the Grape Hyacinth. I'm not sure I'm in love with the composition but I do like the shallow DoF and light from the bottom right corner. I did turn that light a little more golden to go with the purple flowers:)

Happy Easter!

Virginia Bluebells

We have a number of Virginia Bluebells in the back of our yard so when I was out taking pictures of the blooming flowers I couldn't pass these by:) I took the photo in the early morning while the light was still even and dispersed (i.e. before the sun was up). However, as I worked on editing the photo I liked the feel of late-evening and the flowers glowing blue in the light. Have a great rest of the week!

Dreaming of Grape Hyacinth

A big thanks to +Alex Lapidus and +Roxanne Bouche' Overton for the inspiration to try a blur photo! You should definitely check out their streams!!

I was out taking some photos of the flowers this morning as the light was beautiful. After shooting some macros I decided to try an intentional camera movement (ICM) shot. I don't do this very often and it took a bunch of tries to get something I liked. In this case I like the rich colors and diagonal lines.

Happy Sunday!

Chocolate Spring

I had fun with this image of some Grape Hyacinths growing in our front garden. I liked the comp and the color version is nice but I decided to use #On1PhotoRaw to create a B&W version. This allowed me to highlight the flowers and darken the rest of the image. I then added a texture to the background. Finally, back in #Lightroom I used a preset I have that created the "chocolate" monochrome color. I really like the result :) Happy Tuesday!

Daffodil Morning

I had a few moments one morning this past week to get out with my macro lens to shoot some of the flowers that are blooming around the house. Most of the daffodils were affected by the snow last week and so the blooms were bent over to the ground. A few survived and I like this set of three shot in the morning light.

Image processed with #On1PhotoRaw and #Lightroom.

Have a great weekend!

Forsythia in the Snow

I took a few moments this morning after clearing the driveway to try and get a new snow pictures. I normally find it difficult to photograph forsythia so I'm happy with the way this one came out. Hopefully everyone on the east coast avoided a major snowstorm:) It wasn't as bad here as originally predicted. Happy Tuesday!

The Beauty of Lilies

I'm definitely interested in critiques of this image as I don't totally love it. I bought flowers for my wife for Valentine's Day and the arrangement had these beautiful lilies along with red roses. The roses expired a while ago but the lilies are still beautiful. So this afternoon I pulled out the macro lens and tried some different perspectives. I didn't end up with anything great (guess my macro skills are a little rusty:) Still, a fun way to spend some time this afternoon. Have a great weekend!
