Day 115 – Wind

I don’t actually have any photos of the wind, but it has been a constant aggravation for me lately.  It doesn’t make too much difference when taking landscape photos unless there are trees or plants blowing in the foreground.

It’s when you try to get up close and personal to a plant and the wind is blowing that it gets frustrating.

That’s what happened to me today. It was a gorgeous day and I decided to spend my lunch hour at the park. I hadn’t been there for a while and I wanted to see what new plants were blooming.

The Oregon Grape pants were budding and there were some pretty purple flowers blooming.  But every time I tried to get close enough to take a photo, the wind would blow.  But I persevered hoping I would get something out of it.

  1. You live at a such beautiful spot – the little cute bird is my favorite because there is such a depth in the photo everything around him is smudged and he is so crystal clear. Excellent photos!!!!

    1. Thanks Viveka. I liked the bird because he was actually still long enough for me to photograph him. They were flitting all over the place and I had a hard time finding one that would stop long enough to photograph. 🙂

  2. WOW! They are all so beautiful dear Maralee… You did great shots. If you let me I would like to make a painting with one of them, (number 2)… of course on digital programs. Thank you, with my love, nia

      1. Stuff I come across and remember . . . Some from Facebook, some from StumbleUpon.

        Also, people I converse with regularly (not many) share my “Oh, this is cool!!” way of looking at the world, and we exchange things we come across and find interesting.

  3. Hi Maralee! I started following you blog and am enjoying it. I took a lot of photos up in Cook County last summer and your comment about the wind today really hit home to me. I also found that when I was hiking with my camera I was more aware of nature and my surroundings – wild flowers, woodpeckers, tree bark, rocks, moss – I found it all so lovely. Keep up the good work!

I'd love to hear from you
