What is it about a subject or object that causes you to take out your camera capturing that moment for eternity? Is it the way the light reflects off an object that captivates you? Perhaps it is the pale hues in the evening sky that draw your attention. Maybe you notice a unique looking flower or insect that will make an excellent subject for a macro photography capture. Whatever it is that causes you to take out your camera, is something you feel has untapped potential to become a magnificent moment.

Nature offers us breathtaking moments of beauty that are fleeting yet leave an indelible impression on our minds. Have you ever admired the elegance emitted from paper thin petals soaking by sunset's receeding light? The "veins" within the individual petals are enhanced by the brillance of sun's final rays. The warm glow of the remaining beams of light illuminate the pastel petals producing an eye-catching show of elegance!

Landscape photography is similar to art, wherein the photographer recreates a capture of a specific landscape, highlighting the best features for their viewers in order to create a magical scene. The blues of the sky and water are enhanced, making this landscape capture appealing to others. The billowing white clouds captured with a hint of color or shadowing, depending on the time of day, add a dimension of volume. The photographer strives to expose the most beautiful aspects of the landscape to the viewer. Just as an artist paints a landscape blending colors to match the natural earthy shades using their skills to bring out reflections and shadows created by natural light. This post is dedicated to the beauty that is found in the varied elements of the natural landscape, and how elements of shadowing, reflections, and natural blending of colors, highlights the landscapes we photograph. The finished result is beautiful pieces of photography, found from the daily view individuals have. The beauty of the soft glow emitted from the sun, the rainbow hues found within sun trajectories, the sparkle of the water, and the sheen found on surrounding greenery and plants all can be easily overlooked. The photographer's job is to open other's eyes to the magnificent textures and colors found in our everyday world. Landscape photography can appear as beautiful as the most intricately painted portrait, when the photographer incorporates naturally occurring aspects into their photos. The end result is something spectacular to view!

Nature creates for us a kaleidoscope of color on a daily basis with the infusion of blooming buds. I love witnessing the vibrant petals on the plethora of flowers opening to greet the sun. Flowers help to brighten the landscape providing needed pops of color . From the simple wildflower to the exotic lily and all those varieties in between, flowers provide an air of optimism and hope in their appearance. Nothing makes one feel more cheerful than seeing a sunny sunflower, or a wispy dandelion seed flower to wish upon. This post is dedicated to the beauty found all around us in nature's colors seen through flowers. Enjoy these captures and be sure to look for those beautiful palettes of color in your environment!

Standing pools shimmer iridescent in day's light
producing spectrums of captivating color
Twinkling tendrils of sunlit speckled beauty
dance daintily along water's serene surface
Miniature stars stunningly enhance this show of splendor
peppering water with illuminated images
Momentary glimpses of surrounding scenery emerge
dissipating as droplets rain mercilessly down from above
Scenes disappear discreetly, eternally lost
among churning waves from the free flowing fountain
