    Your grandfather was a photographer? Did you know this before Punchbowl?

  5. I’ve been trying to get a good photo of the buttercups this year and just can’t get it right. Your buttercup photo is perfect.

    OMG So awesome!!! I love floral photography, and water! These are emotional, and absolutely stunning! Who designed your watermark. I’m beginning to think I might need one.

    • The watermark is through Adobe Lightroom, so when I export them from Lightroom the watermark is added. It is just their standard one. At the moment I’m using a dinosaur 6 megapixel camera so I don’t think it’s really an issue, I just wanted to get used to doing it, cause I’m in the market for a new camera. That said, I’m contemplating Adobe Elements, but it’s more complicated, and I’ve only recently become interested in maybe turning some of them into actual artwork with effects–I really like the raw images of the flowers by themselves. I loved the swan. He’s in a pond not far from my house, and I just happened by when he was “posing”. Thank you so much for the compliments!

  11. You are an amazing photographer! Just wow! Are these new shots each week? Or do you have a lot you’ve taken in the past that you are sharing with us now?

    • I am taking these every week. I’ve never really done macro until this past February when we went scuba diving–almost everything underwater is macro–it sorta peaked my interest in macro, so I started shooting flowers in Feb. Thank you so much for the compliments! I truly enjoy doing this–it’s a love… 🙂

      • Well it’s an amazing “labor of love”…where do you find the flowers?

      • All over town. Yesterday I went to a place called Maymont that is a huge historic park with extensive gardens. I shot some there for this next week. I plan on going back again one day this week, if I can wangle it. It’s about an hour away. Otherwise, I’m pulling over all over town, and sneaking into places that I might shouldn’t. 🙂 The good thing about the mid atlantic in the spring, there is tons of stuff blooming everywhere. I’ve considered even knocking on doors, but haven’t done that yet.

  13. Your photos are brilliant and beautiful thank you for sharing 🙂

    • Thank you! I never seem to tire of the little thrill I get when I plug the card into my computer and I see a few that came out well (usually out of hundreds! 🙂 ). Thank you for visiting!

  14. I forgot to say I pressed this post to the Donkey Whisperer Blog 🙂
