To continue on with nature shots, today we have a few river shots. These were captured by josh. He found our blog and asked to contribute….of course! We love nature and those that put themselves out there and want to share their talents and captured moments.

Josh shares a poem to reflect his images.

Reflect & Re Vibrate

Reflections,

Mimicked image,

Captured stillness.

A draft of fluctuations

All to new…. one knows not what to do.

Ask in the ethers,

Feel the reverberated effect.

Surround oneself with beauty. 

Bask in the reflections of peace,

Transmute the vibrations of tranquility

Into thy’s honesty.

Walk in nature and observe what you feel. Your internal awareness allows for your own peaceful reflection. As above, so below. As within, so without.

J. Belquoy

 

Josh’d words hit home. They are beautiful. Words to reflect upon.

A very big thank you and heartfelt gratitude to our readers and contributors. It makes our blog that much better.

Nature’s Flowers

There is something about sunflowers. I have always been a fan of them, and they are one of my favorite flowers.  I came across some with a burnt orange center. I snapped a few quick pictures, as I was walking my dogs and they were wanting to chase squirrels. This made holding my Iphone and taking pictures a little difficult. I caught three different shots. It wasn’t wasn’t until later when I was looking at the shots I got, that I realized the bee in the middle of the first sun burnt sunflower picture. How I didn’t see him at the time, I’m not sure (probably because those dogs I had with me).

These type of shots I absolutely love!  You take a picture and get more than you expected upon inspection. These photos are unfiltered and simply exactly as I took them. Now I can review them and think about what I can do differently next time, to improve the shot, yet still keep it in raw form.

I love the many ways you can enhance photography today……however, yes I have a however…..photography in the raw is true art. Angles are a big part of it too. What can be captured without special effects or lens’? Maybe I am still super amateur, or maybe this will just become my style, but I like realness.

I love a face untainted by make up. Make up is paint and can too be beautiful, but something in it’s pure state is beautiful.  It is natural.  It is nature.
