Field of Sunflowers
  Field of Sunflowers 
  
Select: 

 

"This field of sunflowers is near my favorite ice cream place in the world (yes, I'm a "certified" connoisseur of ice cream — ask anyone — how could you doubt me?). Each spring, the farmer owning the ice cream establishment plants these flowers — about 10 acres of them. I love the way they fill the frame while all pointing in the same general direction."



Sunlit Tulip

Select: 

 

"When it comes to flowers, I'm attracted to vivid colors and this is one of my favorites. I took this shot at the purportedly "worst time of the day" for nature photos — high noon. The sunlight comes right down the center and "ignites" the yellowish-white bottom of the tulip."



Golden Hibiscus

Select: 

 

"My daughter has loved Hibiscus from the time she was a small child. Now an adult, you'll still find photos, drawings, and cutouts of them in her bedroom, closet, what have you. I shot this one with huge 12 inch diameter petals on a hot, July, Saturday in 2005. Need I tell you that she has this image framed in her room?"



Red Dahlia
  Red Dahlia 
  
Select: 

 

"This was a difficult shot. You'd think that flowers would be one of the easiest of subjects to capture. After all, it's not as if they need to be trapped first or chased around. But coping with the wind can be a formidable (and exasperating) challenge. This particular specimen was over five feet tall (I didn't know dahlias could get that tall) and moved with the slightest breeze. It took about 20 minutes of waiting to finally get a still moment in order to capture this image. "



Lavender Zinnia
  Lavender Zinnia 
  
Select: 

 

"This zinnia photo was much easier to capture than other, higher-perched flowers. It's close to the ground and less affected by wind. The challenge here was to get the shot without insects. It seemed I couldn't find a moment when there wasn't some crawling or flying insect on or near the petals and I found myself longing for a can of RAID (asking the intruders to move out of the way proved ineffective)."
