As you'll notice all of these images are quite different. I was playing with different lights and varied edits. Personally I find photographing Queen Annes Lace to be one of the most fun flowers there is! I love all the white and how it works against the background colors.
See the plentiful bokeh in the photo above? It's all created from shooting first thing in the morning when the sun is shining on the sparkling dew of a hundred other QAL flowers in the background. First I set my camera on Macro or Super Macro, then squat down and focus on the flower. I continue to move around a bit until the sparkle begins to show itself. Click, click, click. Then I hope for something beautiful!
A little Queen Annes cup of dew!
Mixing a little pink and white is always nice.
Lately I notice many of the QAL are turning brown. A sure sign August is waning. However, the fresh white flowers are still plentiful.
It seems my summers are never quite as exciting as I think they'll be, including this one. I start out with grand plans but somehow the days just seem to slip through my fingers. Does that happen to you?
No matter how many times I photographed Queen Annes Lace this summer it would be one to few.
