Summer Flowers

I haven’t gotten out to do much new photography or travel lately.  These last few weeks have been quite busy with work, and I am nursing a shoulder injury.  So, I was thinking that I’d share some of my oldest digital photographs from not long after I bought my first real DSLR – a Nikon D200.

Technology finally outgrew that camera, but many of the photographs you have seen on my site were taken with that Nikon.  Anyway, here are a few flower close-ups from around our yard that I shot between the summer of 2006 and June of 2009.

For some reason when I first started shooting with the D200, I wasn’t saving both RAW and JPEG  files, so these first two photos might not be quite up the the usual standards.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy these flower shots and that they take you to a happy, summer place in this strange year.

Poppy 1
One of our friends in Washington state gave us a nice batch of poppy seeds one year, and here is one of those blooms.
Lilly 1 wp
My wife, Sheri, can really grow some beautiful lilies.  Here is an example from around 2006.
Columbine 2 wp
This is a macro shot of a columbine from our yard that I took in 2009 using my old Nikkor 28-105mm macro zoom lens.  I still have it, and it is still a superb lens.  BTW, this was made from a RAW file.
Red Columbine 1 wp
Here is a red columbine from the yard in June of 2009.  Same lens as above, and again it was from a RAW file.

Here’s another columbine from the same day that I also shot with that 28-105mm Nikkor macro lens.

Well, I hope these flowers make you smile and brighten your weekend.  Thank you so much for checking out my blog.

Wishing you all the very best — and stay healthy!
