Beautiful Reflection

As many of you know, I really love reflections. They are just another way to see the same thing, but from a different angle. This Water Lily was interesting in that it was there, floating amongst all the green leaves and lily pads, just soaking up the sun. The whiteness of the flower really struck me, along with the reflection of it in the water. I hope you all enjoy!

P.S. I started a Facebook page for my photography, so feel free to swing by and LIKE it on Facebook. My posts will update to that page as well.

100th Post – Sunflower Before the Storm

So this is my 100th post. Hard to believe it for me, but it’s been an amazing journey so far. Can’t wait to see what the next 100 posts will be like.

The past few days I was out in western Kansas (Liberal, to be exact). There were some amazing storms that rolled through the area, and I got some great photos. Good to have to future reference, of course. This one I thought would be fitting, since my first photo post on my blog was a Sunflower field. This lone sunflower looked amazing against the building storm, rain, and sunset. I hope you all enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Rumor has it that if all the bees in the world died, people would soon follow. This is based on the assumption that without them pollinating the world’s crops, we would soon go hungry, and therefore go extinct. I don’t know that it’s really been proven, but the idea is somewhat intriguing. If this indeed is true, then the renewal of life that this bee brings is amazing. But I will tell you now… It doesn’t really matter to me how important they are to my food chain. This little booger tries to sting me, and it’s history. 🙂

Out of my comfort zone

I am a big fan of color. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some black and white photographs, but I’ve never been too happy about my photos in B&W. Being a details person, I tend to notice the colors, textures, and overall look, more so than the impact of light and shadows in B&W photos. In an effort to expand my scope and perspective, I have been trying to notice the contrasts created by the light and shadows more, which makes for a much more vivid B&W photo. I hope you all enjoy this one.
