Mother Nature Caught in Photographs
Nothing brings me as much peace as being in the outdoors. It is not uncommon to find me puttering around in a park, on a beach, at a lake, and even my own back yard. Generally, on these outings I sport a camera in one hand and a leash in the other; my Golden Retriever generally accompanies me on such excursions. These photographs of Mother Nature Outdoors are a compilation of many photo ops. Several different days, many different places, and some are simply lucky shots of the natural world I have been fortunate enough to capture in photographs. Each brings me a bit of peace, and I hope you find some measure of serenity as you forge through the groupings of Photographs of Mother Nature Outdoors .
About the Camera Equipment
I use a Fuji Pro Grade Digital SLR Camera with an on board SB-80DX flash. I never set-up lights or anything fancy when I shoot. I feel the digital advantage of this kind of camera is enough to get some snapshots worth sharing. For the shots in this hub, a Nikkor (Nikon) 28mm to 105mm, 1:3.5 - 4.5D mount lens was used. It offered me optimum focal distance and range without having to change to a different lens. I have always been a big fan of Nikon, still ONLY using their lenses, but for my needs these days, the Fuji SLR Camera is a perfect fit.
Tiny Orange Flower
Small Orange Flower Picture (Orange and Green Photo)
No larger than a 2 year old child's fingernail, this Tiny Orange Flower brightly popped out from its contrasting green backdrop causing me to take notice and snap this photograph. Dancing along-side the small sprigs of grass and leaves the light gently kisses the face of its petite peddles. The light as well as the coloring are pastel in appearance rather than sharp and crisp, bringing soothing emotions to wash over the viewer.
In the unfocused background we can see sibling flowers and green surroundings, which help to bring the wonderfully orange flower to center stage. I could have sat with this little gift forever so it seemed, enjoying the cool spring air and the precious expression of hope Mother Nature provided. This one tiny flower slowed my day to a stroll and created a serene head-space for the rest of the photo shoot. Because of this, I was able to appreciate many beautiful things that may have been missed otherwise.
Igniting Pink Flora
Light Striking Pink Flower Picture
In this photograph you find the power of light bending through space. A prism of colors are caught erupting at the edge of the lights movement. The pink flowers glow as if struggling to evade complete transparency in the face of such expanding passionate visual energy. The motion of light is almost visible as it thrusts through space, even as it is actually frozen within the image configuration; the shear immensity of Mother Natures will hardly slowing at all. From its brightly bursting beginning to its crisp convex edge, this powerful light attempts to become a Demigod1 of visual expression.
This grouping of 5 outdoor photographs brings a variety of images. The only thing in common is that they each have been located in the great outdoors.
- Pink High-wire Bud gives the impression of precariously navigating a circus high-wire. The stringent vine becomes the supporting feature while the dazzling Pink Bud wavers across the suspended and shifting wire. One can almost hear the gasps of a tense audiences response. All else in the background falls away as this talented bud captures our imaginations.
- Running Pinto shares the joy of a warm sunny day romping in the pasture with the cows and calves. A spirited gallop ensues as the youthful horse chases a calve in an equine dance of mischief.
- Gull Gliding on Shore is a simple and often witnessed image when visiting a beach setting. The warm California waves caress the shoreline as this Gull glides profoundly along its wet sandy edge.
- Feathered Gathering peeks in on a group of very small sea birds (none taller than a tea cup) as they join in congress along the clam Bodega Bay shore rocks.
- Oreo Cows are a festive sight as I cruise along Hwy 29. An entire herd stands away from these three black and white bovine. A sight I had not witnessed before, these fun and contrasting cows made for quite an unusual hillside view.

Photographs of Plants
Roses, Claws, and Flower Pictures
From my front yard to the Maui coast, these pictures of flowers are a grouping I particularly enjoyed snapping. Roses have always caught my attention, so adding a couple from the front yard seemed appropriate. I also found a soft white-peddled flower way in the back of our property, and a really odd "claw-like" ice plant at the beach near Bodega Bay, in California. And the bright pink flowering plant outside of our condo in Maui shouted, "Take my picture!" and so I did. I thought the ice plant claw flora was the most unusual plant to share with you. I hope you enjoy the images.
