When I enter natures environments and colorful flower gardens I am filled with such excitement. There is so much for me to look at and so much to review, keeping my eyes focused is hard to do. After awhile I begin to allow the adventure to show me these amazing discoveries right in front of my eyes. I position my camera closely to my eye and with such clarity I focus in on my subject matter and soon my vision is one with the camera. I allow my eye to zoom in closely to the subject matter and see the most brilliant and abstract patterns and colors in these graceful gardens. Many photographers feel flowers are an over photographed subject matter. To me I can always be lifted up by a beautiful elegant and abstract close-up of any flower.
