[singlepic id=223 w=320 h=240 float=left] First I would like to apologize to all my followers for the length of absence I had to take. I hope to be back into a rhythm that I can continue for awhile. With the weather getting better, and as long as I am able to I plan to go out and try to get more shots for you.
That being said, I rarely think there is something more beautiful than the simplicity of nature itself. The Dandelion left, taken here at home with a Panasonic DMC-FZ20 on May 7, 2006. This subject has fascinated many artists and photographers, appearing soft and delicate yet resilient enough to spread through even the best cared for lawns.
[singlepic id=222 w=320 h=240 float=right] Development of this iconic flower for me took a different turn. I love the softness of the appearance of these naturally parachuted seeds but I also love the the delicate detail and lines within the bloom that draw us in. Simply stated anything in nature has a complexity of it’s own design, intricate in ways that exceed all imagination.
Bringing you to the core of this flower I tone mapped this photo to maximize the image detail. I also attempted to draw you in by lowering the grass colors to a unobtrusive level. I felt this helped show case the bloom and stems. It is simply amazing how complex nature can be.
