For me, the purity and simplicity of a yellow daisy against a white background is a pleasure to enjoy viewing. Hope you enjoy also. The pedal sticking up is what attracted me to this particular blossom.

Floating Gazania

A Gazania flower floating in darkness. This image was created by layering the flower over a black layer in Photoshop and then masking out the background of the flower revealing the black layer underneath.

Two Water Drops on Zinnia

A Zinnia with just two water drops photographed in our back yard with a textured background from Distressed Textures. I often see flowers photographed where the photographer took a spray bottle or something and added way to many water drops to the flower. Here, I decided to do the opposite and place just two on the flower. I am not opposed to someone adding all the water drops they like to a flower, but I do find I am much more attracted to the images with just a few, or even just one drop of water on the flower. Have a wonderful day.

 

A verse for the day:

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 1:9

Spring Time in the Desert

Photographed west of Phoenix one morning in the spring of this year. We had lots of wildflowers this year, one of the beautiful things here in Arizona when we get enough rain. The flower in the lower left is called “brittlebush” and the cactus is the iconic Saguaro. We also have creosote bush in the scene.
