Studying the dayliliesPosted: June 25, 2010 Filed under: Adventures in art, Adventures in Life, Earth, home, nature, Photography, pond, SkyWatch Friday, Summer | Tags: daylilies, flowers 28 Comments
I have a confession to make…
Sometimes I take pictures of the same things over and over and over again. Regular, long-time visitors to Life in the Bogs might remember the sunflowers that I was absorbed with during my mother’s illness and death. The daylilies are fascinating me lately. Perhaps it is the color orange grabbing my attention. Perhaps it is the lighting in the afternoon (which, as I understand it, is not the best time of day for photography but it seems to be working well with the daylilies). Perhaps the sky and clouds are drawing my attention with the daylilies pointing the way.
Whatever the case, they have captured my attention. These three photos were taken this week with no real conscious motivation other than I was out there at the time. “The time” happens to be somewhere between 4:30 and 5:30pm when I go out just to breathe some fresh air and see what’s happening around the pond before I start to work on dinner and settle in for the evening. (As always, click on the photos to see the larger version.)
Since there is plenty of sky in all three photos, I decided to make this a SkyWatch Friday post. To see beautiful skies from around the world, click on the badge/link below.
Note to you Blogspot SkyWatch Friday folks: I’ve been visiting quite a few of you but if you don’t have the name and url option, I am unlikely to leave a comment since I don’t like the other options. There are some gorgeous skies out there!
