A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday – 10

Here’s the tenth installment of “A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday.” You can view all the earlier Sunday flower images/posts on this page.

This is a photo of an Echinacea/Purple Cone flower that I took back in September at my friends’ property in Tesuque, New Mexico, just outside of Santa Fe.  If you were watching the blog back then in its beginning days, then you saw the same flower in a different way.

I like this photo as to me it looks like it’s staged with a background hung behind it. And it’s not. It’s just a flower in nature with the early day sun on it. Nothing better in my mind. 🙂

Hope you’ve been having a great weekend, and I hope you enjoy your Sunday.

  34. This is echinacea (cone flower) right? I love taking shots of this flower. Nice capture!

  35. I like this picture. I am not a photographer but I own a fish tank I had those very little fish called “Moskito Rasbora”. They was 1 cm small and reach a maximal size of 3 cm. Yea that seems to be a little bit off topic but…

    Since then I started to try shoot fotos and soon I noticed that it is pretty strange to shoot those little friends with a mobile phone cam or a cheap standard cam.

    Since then I started to reading about photography but I still dont know much and anyway I cant practice as I do not own a DSLR Cam. Its just to expansive for me. However I tell this because I am now since then aware of the word “Macro Photography” and always if I see Macro Foto´s I just say “Woooow looks pretty”. Not only if I see Fotos of little Fish.

    Since then I just enjoy any Macro Foto and your Flower Foto is one of these Fotos I really can enjoy.

    As I said I am not a photographer I rather work with 3d Tools and Photoshop. Anyway its still hard to descripe what I like on these Macro Picitures. I think its because this very special Alice in Wonderland perspective 😀 See small things big.. that is beaty.

    Great Foto thanks for sharing.

    Greetings from Germany.

    • Welcome to my blog, Dennis! So glad you have a love for photography. And I love little fish! And yes, a macro would take those photos well, but yes, all camera equipment is costly, which is an issue, even for me.

      So glad you love macro photograph, and that you liked this photo. I love shooting with my macro lens, as it takes me to a different world, seeing things in ways our normal eye can’t see. So glad you know and can appreciate that. 🙂

      Thanks for visiting my blog, Dennis and the very thoughtful comment!

      • Thanks. Yes takes you to another world, that descripes it well. In the case of your flower photo its like you see it with the eye´s of a aproaching wasp for example. Our world and how we see it is already big but it must imagine you would be an ant or so. 🙂

        And we all know there are even smaller dimensions. Its interesting. When I was young I had a cheap little microscope and I still remind how excited I was when I´ve tested differend things on it. It was so much abstract and a completely differend dimension. Interesting. 🙂
        I still dont know when and why I stopped this hobbys but it must be due to all the other hobbys I had which were already time consuming. I dont know.

        Looking forward to your next projects…
        Greetings from Germany again..
        Dennis 🙂

      • Wonderful, Dennis. I’ve thought about getting a microscope at some point. It does let you see into a different world. Kind of like a macro lens or a telescope does too. Great comment! Thank you!

  36. I absolutely love these flowers… Thanks for sharing!

  37. […] I took this image at my friends’ property in Tesuque, which is just outside of Santa Fe. They have the most beautiful grounds, and the husband has a wonderful way with plants and flowers. I’ve posted other photos from this property before; a recent one being this pretty flower photo. […]
