This photo was published in a magazine in Holland. It is an American Beauty Dahlia and one of my favorites.

This current series is all about our glorious mother earth and nature.  This week is the long awaited  Floral Macros.  This topic was suggested by Serendipty.  I’m also writing a two part series on my Tips and Tricks specifically for floral macros, see my Part Two and Part One posts.

Part One and Part Two.

The Next Series – Geometry

  • Things with Edges
  • Cooked & Squiggly Lines
  • Straight Lines
  • Squares and Angles
  • Circles and Curves

How It Works?

Most weeks I will come up with a topic. Feel free to write me with things you want to learn about.
Go through you photo archives and see what photos you have that fits the current week’s challenge, or better yet grab you camera and take a new photo!

ENJOY and have FUN.

My Entry for the Week

Since I’m doing new flower every day, I thought I would highlight some of my favorite floral macros I’ve taken over the years.  It’s getting close to the water gardens opening, so I did pick a couple of lotus and waterlilies.  Guess I’m getting anxious for them.  ENJOY!

  1. Well, Cee, I was astonished to see your photos of a lotus and realize that I had never seen a picture of a lotus in my life! Thanks for all your beautiful shots.


  2. Did you hear me screaming with joy? Thank you for including my blog in your “Featured Bloggers”. I am thrilled!!! I am going to tell all my friends! Thanks!


  3. Gorgeous! I love lotuses. All photos are lovely – cannot pick one only. I’ll see what I can find from this spring!


  4. Beautiful floral photos, I loved the photo of the water lily and the lotus flower is amazing, especially the inside view! Thanks for the challenge 🙂


    • Thank you so much for featuring my entry for the Water challenge. I’m actually over the moon!!! Blessings. ❤ Irina


  5. Insanely beautiful Cee. The bearded Iris is jaw dropping. I learn so much about images and composition from checking out your work. I can almost smell the scent of that rose with the detailed water droplets on it. Masterful.


  6. Amazing macro images – stunning …. I’m such a romantic soul – so my pick has to be … the top one, the water lily. *smile

Award Free Blog

I appreciate you thinking of me for an award. I have had a lot of fun with awards in the past. I think awards are a fantastic tool to help out people who are just starting their blogging adventure. I've been here awhile now.

My best award is that you somehow still come to visit me when ever you get a chance. It's a thrill and joy to share my photography and life with all of you. Thanks.
