Flowers From Friends

Below are a few photos that friends have taken of spring flowers just recently.  All of them make me happy, and as I’ve said before, “Flowers are the Great Physician’s happy pills.”  Enjoy!

These photos of spring wildflowers were taken by Seresa Hunter Crowson on a recently family camping trip to the Texas hill country.  Note the beautiful butterfly in the second photo.

This one was taken by Holly Cate of Holly Cate Photography, a young woman with an amazing eye for stunning photographs.  You can see more of her photos, and purchase them, by going to the link above.

This crocus photo was graciously shared by Western Rose, another young woman with an eye for beauty, and sister to Holly Cate.  You can see that photographic talent definitely runs in the family – as does rifle shooting 🙂  You can find more photos at The Little Adventures of Western Rose, or read more about her by CLICKING HERE.

Thank you, Ladies, for sharing these beautiful photos of creation with us!

Outdoor photography sites

I wanted to pass along a couple of blog sites to you that focus on outdoor photography and have stunning photographs.  I’ve already posted a couple of links to Dianne’s site over at life as I see it, which is phenomenal, but there are a couple of others worth mentioning, as well.

Patrick Latter, at Canadian Hiking Photography  goes places that I wouldn’t even think of going – so I’m able to live vicariously through his adventures.  For every trek, Patrick posts the temperature, weather conditions, directions, and gear used on the trip, along with other info to describe the spectacular photos he captures.  Check out his recent hike of Ha Ling Peak.

Next, Photobotos describes their collaboration by saying, “Come Travel With Us – We promise one amazing photo every day.”  This site allows photographers to send in the pics they have taken from around the world, along with tips, hints, and techniques for achieving similar results.  One of my recent favorites is “Sea of Horses.”

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Dogs and beautiful pictures – what’s not to love?

This has nothing to do with shooting, but it definitely applies to the outdoors.  I happen to love dogs and beautiful photographs, and the photos that Dianne in Nova Scotia takes are just stunning – even those of her precious pups.  The poem that goes with the photos is also very fun and clever.  You can find her post over at Just Because – and while you are there, check out her other photographs.  It’s incredible to me that she sees such beauty on a daily basis, just around her home, that would seem like heaven to me.

Camera shots

This photo was taken the other day, then two days later, I took the one below of the same basic area on the tree (though not exactly the same angle).  You can see how many new blooms have burst out in just a couple of days (and I’m sorry I just noticed the trash bags – will have to crop later :0)

Amazing!

The next ones were taken from my hammock in the back yard, from late afternoon to dark.
