Flowers from Phipps

After a recent trip to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens I wanted to share some of my favorite flowers and cactus.

A Spring Flower Poses for a Portrait

Tonight’s post is a close up of a Trillium.  I find these flowers to be very interesting because of the how the grow in great abundance in some areas and just down the trail a few feet there will be none.  There is a local park that only have white Trilliums.  I have visited the area many times and never saw a single red or yellow Trillium.  And yet other areas have an abundance of the red and not as many of the white.

This one was taken in Cedar Creek Park in Rostraver, Pa.  This park has a mixture of red, white and yellow Trilliums.  As well as many other species of wild flowers.

Hope you enjoy!


Signs of Spring

Recently I was able to get out and about with the photography group that I belong to and we took a trip to Ohiopyle State Park.  We stopped at the main falls then went to cucumber falls and then a quick stop to shoot a few wild flowers.  This was the first time I was able to get out for a while and I was really glad that I did.

Here are two photos of Cucumber Falls and two shots of Trilliums.

Working Up a Sweat

Tonight my post is of a flower that just looked like it was working hard.  I thought the water droplets and flush colors made it look as though it had just finished a tough workout and was ready for a cool drink.

A Weeping Orchid

As I looked through photos searching for something to post tonight I came across this sad orchid.  As I looked at this orchid I thought to myself that this particular orchid was having a really bad day.  I wondered if the photo reflected my personal feelings at the time.

Do you think that your photography represents how you feel when your taking the photo?


Flower Power

Tonight I bring you a random assortment of flowers.  To me it’s amazing how flowers can make you forget about the hustle of the day.  They seem to have a way of calming a person down.

Hope you enjoy.
