great capture all the different twists and turns and hidden landscapes within the simple opening of a flower the textures demand to be sampled as if a rare dessert were placed on a table the color an invitation to savor a flavor yet discovered
Fantastic shot! I just bought a new camera and it arrives tomorrow. I’d love to take macro shots like yours. Any tips?
It helps to have your camera handy so when you see something great you can snap it. I take many shots of the same thing. Experiment with cropping. Have fun!
Your posts are so lovely!
lovely! bothe the image and the lines!
Both the photo and the flower have such amazing complexity. Beautiful.
that’s awesome – love the contrast from the shadows at the depth and the highlights at the tips – well defined!!!
Lovely, such rich tones and textures. What kind of camera and lens do you use?
Nothing fancy, I use a sony cybershot WX10
Beautiful photo that renders all the beuaty and charm of the peony.
This is lovely and it made me sigh.
This looks like you could keep peeling layers and it would never end. The vibrant pink is amazing.
This beautiful post makes me sigh. 🙂
Beautiful birth in the softness of light…
Absolutely beautiful! I love peonies.
Oh my, simply incredible – thank you so much for sharing!
Another sensitive pairing of image with words.
I just love peonies, and I love that pink – gorgeous photo, and words!
I just wish peonies would grow and flower for me, but they don’t seem to like our climate much – I’ll have to be content with photos. Thanks for yours!
One of my favorite!! Like it!! 🙂
