Following Instructions, Sort of



The instruction manual for my camera recommends against pointing the camera at the sun, lest damage result.

Because I always follow instruction (;>o), I didn’t aim my camera directly at the sun.  I aimed it at something between the camera and sun.  That counts, doesn’t it? 

I’ve done this before, using the sun for backlighting, but lately I am obsessed with photographing flowers in this manner.  Thus:


Dandelion seed head



Cotton Grass



Lupine



Wild Geranium



Dwarf Fireweed



Clover

Grass Seed

Now that I think about it, this isn't an entirely new obsession:



This photo was taken in Maui.

And, I am not above using the moon, either:

  2. The sun, the moon, the stars...whichever you want. I give them all to you. Use them as you see fit.

    This isn't a direct Bible quote, but I believe the Lord will approve.

    In other words, I love these nature photos and I hope your camera holds up in spite of it all.

  4. Love the way you have them framed. We just returned from Maggie Valley, where the lawn at the cottage there was covered in white clover, much beloved by buzzy bees. No barefooting. That dandelion seed head looks like a wish on the wing. Gorgeous.
