Saturated in Purple Cone Flowers

One of the ways



fall in love

with the prairie

is with focus.

I love these

purple cone flower


almost as much


I love sunflowers.

Just saturating

myself in their beauty

brings fascination


what is simply along the roadside.

And that makes me



for the road --

for seasons --



How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways . . . 

How many angles,
how many views,
how many perspectives,
how many stages,
how many ways

can I photograph a purple cone flower

so that each view is unique?

so that each view takes the breath?

so that each view increases the love for here and now?

If you would like to spend some time
getting more comfortable with your camera
and learning some creative ways to "focus and fall in love with here and now"

  1. Oh, how I wish I could be there . . . I have no idea what I am doing with my camera, and it frustrates me to know end. Your photography, as always, inspires ME to take better pictures . . . and I think that's about the most flattering comment I can make, my friend. Adore these purples and greens. They make me smile - big time. Hugs.
