November 19, 2015 … flowers and seeds

Today, we flew to Queenstown.

Poppy

Wind-blown poppy

This put an additional squeeze on photography time yesterday, so my options are limited.  I had to visit a fellow committee member in Eastbourne, so I saw some bright poppies near his house. They were being beaten about by the wind but I liked the bright colour and the hairy stems.

lilies

Next, I paused in Sladden park and liked the lilies and their reflection in the river which was sheltered from the wind above.

seeds

Seed heads

At home,I saw that more of those shimmering grasses had developed seed pods so I tried for an open air shot in the wind.

And in the immortal words of Mr Gump, that’s all I have to say about that.

About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
