Re: Minnesota 2015 Part 5

Sometimes it’s good to step back and get a shot of the surroundings. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4856/46057883184_fbe174a643_c.jpg It appears that we are visiting a place with a lot of rocks. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7892/39817503373_f05e4121bb_c.jpg We could have had a picnic here, but we di...

Minnesota 2015 Part 5

It is the next day, 8/11/2015. First on the docket is this beautiful, not-so-young automobile. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7821/46695384671_0c21ac81d8_c.jpg Now, what in the world are “Blue Mounds”? https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7800/45970774124_80c7564d13_c.jpg My husband and son, with tree. http...

Orange wins out. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7882/31665591447_ac32600c6b_c.jpg Added a filter to the daisy things to artsy them up a bit. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4883/46554715752_9e4ce62b82_c.jpg They must be hoarse. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7814/46554717302_df9ae9700f_c.jpg We have spo...

“Me and my shadow.” https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4811/46546295611_a205ec5e0a_c.jpg Pink wins out over green this time. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7893/46546295811_eae1f349dc_c.jpg The original picture was a mass of yellow flowers. I selected a portion to use as a background and applied a filter....

Every garden needs at least one fountain. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4841/31284351757_8fe7836090_c.jpg This is what flowers look like when they have a bad-hair day. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4883/46172541002_7d3e4f91f2_c.jpg Oh!

Coneflowers will share the stage with other coneflowers. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4862/45971689532_96771e163d_c.jpg Or just keep to themselves. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4806/31082500297_01b567b88b_c.jpg Somebody should let that little orange guy come through. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/...

Minnesota 2015 Part 4

This type of flower always reminds me of hard candy. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4899/44099565380_314d3fed00_c.jpg There are so many flowers here, they look like common ground cover. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4804/45191408354_1b8f16f37e_c.jpg I suppose the fence is there in case the flowers wa...

A rather unusual view of falls. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4870/44068279340_e60186a75e_c.jpg A second picture of the same view was so different, I had to include it.

Seriously pink cone flowers here, and a few purple interlopers. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4904/44948884884_1d14b94870_c.jpg I think a sneaky gardener did some pruning on this one. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1935/45623045342_1fca0f5fb8_c.jpg Attractive display. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/19...

You have to take a break once in a while. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1951/45557979282_4298a220f9_c.jpg There is always a place to sit. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1913/31736306268_efa04d8d47_c.jpg Almost a face. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1975/31736305848_903b5cde1c_c.jpg Competing whites. h...

Not sure what this thing is, but it is a pretty color. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1977/44534374454_173d6b95e9_c.jpg We see this flower quite a bit here in Kansas City.

The sweet thing posed for a long time. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1966/43931455605_48b1dc2b06_c.jpg It’s fascinating to see how these branches drape. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1952/43030967350_ea5f52b0dd_c.jpg One way to deal with a portrait-oriented image is to copy it, flip the copy and pas...

Re: Minnesota 2015 Part 2

Sometimes white flowers are difficult to photograph because they tend to appear overexposed. These behaved nicely and even pop. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1884/44648178602_0a40ce6b32_c.jpg One might wonder why the pavement stops abruptly. The wild field beyond is an acceptable excuse. https://c2....
