I love photographing flowers. They’re gorgeous, amazing works of natural art. They shine, rich with the colors of love and soul, and even as they age, wither and slowly drop their petals, they hold a certain beauty, a certain eternal grace that follows them out of spring and into the months of the year less hospitable to their delicate artifice. To me, they are the culmination of nature’s own artistic ingenuity, a testament to the glorious beauty of the world in which we are all so fortunate to live.
By capturing that beauty with the lense of a camera, I work to preserve the visual impact of these incredible blossoms, to bring to digital life and a kind of cyberspace immortality the arcs and clusters they form, to share and keep for the world something that, while brief and passing in it’s beauty, is ultimately timeless.
A note about these photos: These pictures were taken by Earl S. Wynn on the grounds of Morningsun Herb Farm in Vacaville, California, though one or two were also taken of flowers he grows on the rural ranch where he lives. I'd like to be able to offer them as stock, but I've had some trouble with people copying my materials outright and claiming it as theirs before proceeding to out-market me so that I no longer get the page view compensation I deserve.
If you like what you see here, feel free to link back to this article (or the slideshow), or contact me directly if you're interested in using these photos for anything you want. I'm really friendly and easy to work with. *smile* I’ve also done a number of other photo galleries, which you can visit through the group links near the bottom of this page.
