A square crop was perfect for this image of coneflowers. The tones are what I love about this macro photo. And of course, there is tons of flower love here too – these babies are drying in the sunlight.
From last month, a bright shot of sage blooming. I chose this image for the month of April for my 2010 calendar.
Did I mention the lovely calendar I created of nature images called In softness, beauty and light.? Thought so.
Although I took this macro shot last month, it has a bit of a wintry feel to it. Ahh nature. Don’t you see *frost* on the blossoms? And so it goes, this photo is featured in my 2010 calendar for the month of January.
This image is featured for the month of February in my 2010 calendar. T.S. Eliot wrote that “April is the cruelest month”, but I really think it’s February. By then, we’ve grown very tired of the cold & dreariness of winter and are frantically looking for signs of spring amid the brown and decay. But to no avail. At least where I live, that’s the story with our Mother Nature. A sun-lit shot with pretty colors was actually required for this month.
I have no idea what this plant is, but I really like the tones in this shot. Wish I could identify all my nature images: ought to send this shot to the local botanical gardens where I took it, they may know. Anyway, I’m using this macro shot as the September image for my 2010 calendar.
