Soft & Dreamy

Friday while Mom and I were on our way home from the store, I noticed some purple and lavender wildflowers along the road.  Of course I was intrigued and immediately thought about a macro photo shoot.

So I gathered some up along with some bittersweet and goldenrod and over the course of Friday evening and Saturday afternoon I made around 200 images.  Yay I know, don't say it, lol.

Anyway I became so fascinated with the unopened buds of the flower that I got carried away just a bit.  They looked so cool through the lens that I couldn't help myself.

See what you think. You can see them bigger if you click on them.

















I have so many more but I didn't want to bore you with photo overload.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On a different side note here are two barns I captured today while on a photo hunting expedition.



Our trees are slowly starting to turn color, but some seem to dry up and drop off first so not sure whether we will have good color this year. 

Hope you all have a great week.

I almost forgot to tell you, I now have a photography only page on Facebook.

Hello, the flowers are gorgeous. I always love purple flowers. The barns and farm scenes are beautiful. You live in a lovely area. Have a happy day and week ahead.

...I just got back from spending the weekend in the Adirondack Mountains. After our wet summer it is dry and the maples leaves are falling without turning colors. Your first barn is a beauty, a style I associate with areas south of here. Thanks Felicia for sharing your gorgeous images, stop back when you can.
So interesting - I always think I've not taken enough photos and so take just a few more, just to be certain I get what I want - and often when I get home and get them on the laptop I think that maybe I should have actually taken a few more, so I fully understand 200 photos of the flowers - it is the sorting through them then that makes it hard to decide on which is best - as so many are so similar. Love all the views of the buds. And the barns are fascinating - great composition.

Your pics are stunning. I am so allergic to goldenrod, but it is pretty growing alongside the road.

Amazing flower shots. I know that feeling, it's hard to stop shooting when what you see is so beautiful.
NC Sue said…
Oh wow, Felicia. These are marvelous images - simply marvelous!
Thanks so much for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2017/09/the-view-from-mount-washington.html
I don't blame you a bit for lots of pictures...they are all exquisite! If ever there was a perfect macro subject that flower would be it. Always beautiful farmscapes in your area even if there isn't as much Fall color as usual.

Breathtaking macro shots Felicia and always fascinating to see the buds up close. You did a great job of taking photos of these pretty flowers. I have seen them around here, the same colors at least but the roads are too busy for me to stop. Glad you were able to so that we can enjoy these pretty photographs.

Fantastic group of photos!! You must have had a terrible time choosing which ones to post out of 200 pixs! They are so beautiful.
Rajesh said…
Amazing captures.
Carola Bartz said…
I so get your fascination with the macro and the flower heads. It's hard to pick just a few, right? Your photos are gorgeous.
rebecca haegele said…
Oh no, say it isn't so, I am hoping for fall color. I hope they don't drop first, but it is awfully dry. I like your macros.
Al said…
That is a pretty flower in all its views.

Pat Tillett said…
Both the flower and barn photos are all beautiful.
Not many old barns left around here, but I still enjoy seeing them whenever I can.

Well captured soul of a flower, my absolute favorite is #5.
Angie said…
I can certainly see why you were entranced with these pictures - I can almost imagine the tendrils opening slowly and reaching toward the sun - mystical and magical!
