Summer Garden Photography
Summer garden photography is enjoyable for people who love to garden, or those who prefer to be behind the camera. I attribute beautiful garden pictures to the attractive plants, flowers, and two cats that like to frolic in a garden up in the San Bernardino Mountains. Garden photography is also an inspirational way to map out the layout of a garden, and to help plan what would work best for the next summer. Looking at photographs of the same garden over the years helps to see how the same garden has evolved over time.
One day in June of 2011, I documented the early stages of a summer garden with my camera. The plants, Annie cat, and Sweety cat are the stars of this photo essay.
Meandering through the garden gives me an opportunity to gaze a the beauty of the plants and flowers. It is quite meditative as well. Photographing a garden is like visual yoga, for me it is anyway.
Cats playing in garden are enticing to photograph, especially when they are surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers.
I also enjoyed photographing the bird bath in the garden, but unfortunately no birds were around at that moment in time because Sweety cat and Annie cat were playing nearby. The birds are smart creatures and always take off when a cat shows up. Another thing I photographed were the bean plants that were beginning to grow in June of 2011 when the summer garden had just been planted.
Capturing more garden scenes is something I quite enjoy doing with my camera.
Later in June I captured more pictures of the flowers and plants in a garden a mile high above the San Bernardino Valley. The San Bernardino Mountains is a place where there are four seasons in Southern California, and summer is the prime growing season.
The garden can be a very inspirational place, and you can even find artwork and picture frames to remind yourself of gardening during the bleak part of winter.
