Two red Coneflowers on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. A neighbour had planted red and yellow varieties of Coneflowers along the side of the road this summer.

Three Of A Kind

Three fading Coneflowers on the South Bruce Peninsula in the autumn. Photographed on a recent walk around the neighborhood when I was looking for groups of things for the October Squares theme of Kind.

This is my day 3 contribution to Becky’s October Squares challenge on the theme of Kind.

Three of a Kind: Fading Coneflowers

Fading Summer Colours

Another quick post of a recent photo written using the Wi-Fi at a park in the local town as we have no internet connection again.

Another photo using a portrait lens to photograph flowers and plants.

For this photo I used the Kamlan 50mm lens wide open at f/1.1 on a Sony a6000 camera.

Negative Space

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Negative Space prompt.

The prompt started me thinking about some of the photos of plants and flowers I have taken using various fast portrait lenses this summer.

That started me thinking about my use of negative space in some of my bird photography.
