Coming Upon Amber

These delicate flowers live in a leafy cropping so dense that the leaves themselves are almost black. I did nothing to tweak the colours here... the gorgeous amber colour of the petals is exactly what my naked eye saw. Perhaps the dark indigo-green leaves gave the contrast needed to make the petals look so vibrant; … Continue reading Coming Upon Amber

A Beautiful Day on the Farm

The last days of summer spent on excursions into the countryside with family and friends... well, as many as allowed under COVID restrictions. Stopping at a roadside farmer's market to get some fresh supplies for the week ahead and parking next to a field of amazing sunflowers. Each one sings with love and life... so … Continue reading A Beautiful Day on the Farm

We’ve Got Pitcher Plants Here?

Imagine that these are only about 2cm long... when I tilted it, liquid poured out. I couldn't see inside with my naked eyes, but these look a lot like carnivorous pitcher plants. Regardless, they are stunningly beautiful. Not exactly yellow, but more an orange-hued ochre. They grow out of a solid and proud looking stem, … Continue reading We’ve Got Pitcher Plants Here?

Photobomb

The wind was gentle and moved these tiny flowers softly into the frame of my shot; making it look like the flowers were photobombing the shot. I can almost hear them giggling at their successful prank. Prints & more available at Arts MPerron @ https://1-mario-perron.pixels.com

Canary Yellow Brush Strokes

This little flower measures about one centimetre in diameter and gives off more yellow than imaginable. When reviewing the images I took, it seemed to me that the outer petals resemble brushstrokes with good, thick oil paint. I may have to try and reproduce this image in oils!

Danger In A Beautiful Packaging

Look a little past this blossom and what do you see? Spikes! Do they do more than protect these flowers? If so, what? These flowers were few and far between in this particular clearing at The Morgan Arboretum. I found none in decay, nor with any bug bites taken from them. No bees on them … Continue reading Danger In A Beautiful Packaging

Adding To My Palette

We discovered a new colour in the garden the other day... this gorgeous powder-blue. It popped up long enough for us to grab this shot and share it but quickly disappeared later that same day. We have yet to see other buds or blossoms from this vine and it makes it all the more spectacular … Continue reading Adding To My Palette

A Single Tear for Whiteness

Please focus on the right side of the shot, where a single drop of dew slowly rolls down the gentle petal, like the tear rolling down the soft skin of your love's cheek. The monochrome petals look sensuous and invite the lover's touch on their surfaces. It may be challenging for normal fingers to touch … Continue reading A Single Tear for Whiteness

A Natural Choice

I'm continuously fascinated by what happens to the dandelion flower when it turns to seed. I've never seen any plant in the transition from the bright and wet yellow blossom to this bone-dry constellation of seeds. I wonder how it happens. How does each yellow petal change humidity, colour, texture, and shape? These look dead, … Continue reading A Natural Choice

A Brightness of Yellow

In a field filled with greens, there spoke a tiny voice loudly! this tiny yellow flower shone with such volume that it became a brightness of colour. It shouted, "see me shine, see my beauty, see my yellow"! It is beautiful, joyous, and glorious. Prints & more available at Arts MPerron @ https://1-mario-perron.pixels.com
