Downloaded some slideshow software for my portrait photography business and couldn’t resist putting together a show of images of wildflowers that I photographed at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison Indiana.
Finally the weather is changing and I won’t have to rely on past years photographs of wildflowers to keep my sanity I should be getting out by the first of the week and things should really be popping by then !!
Hope you enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed capturing all of these beautiful specimens of wildflowers, if you are ever in Southern Indiana you definitely have to make a stop at Clifty Falls especially in early spring it is one the most beautiful Sate Parks in the Midwest and a must stop on your vacation list !!
A light at the end of the tunnel looks like this is the last really cold night and temps here in Madison are supposed to start rising into the 60-70 degree mark the next week..it’s time !!
Okay, we still don’t have spring yet, but the weatherman says it’s on it’s way. We’ll see, I have heard this before and I am still not seeing much spring activity outside, except for my allergies…figures lol !!
Here in Madison Indiana and down in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park we are looking to be about three weeks behind the bloom so like it or not I need to be patient and just wait it out. I just hope the cold hasn’t affected the bloom much and I will be able to photograph some great wildflower displays !!
The pic I am displaying here is a Large Flowering Trillium that I shot at Clifty Falls State Park in Southern Indiana few years ago. At least I am able to keep my sanity by going back and processing and sharing old images, hopefully it won’t be much longer before I can share some fresh images for you.
I guess you can see from the title I am more then a little tired of the horrible winter that won’t seem to end !! After five months of cold snowy weather my whole physical being is crying out for a change, long cold winter days and the drab monotone landscape is taking it’s toll on my photography !!
Sure I have been able to photograph quite a few winter landscapes but enough is enough, by this time last year I had already shot enough wildflowers to fill three cards and it seemed like it was going to be an endless spring, I guess paybacks are for real lol !!
Looking at the long term weather reports it looks like there is not going to be any real warm up in our future and as I sit here it is snowing again.
I am in need of some real warmth along with an actual day outside in the sun, I can only imagine what those poor souls go thru near the Arctic Circle when they have to endure those long winter nights. Ar least we didn’t get the brutal cold that some of neighbors to the north had to deal with but it still doesn’t make me feel any better !!
I actually had many images to share with you over the winter but I became so sick and tired of it all I really didn’t want to have to look at them any longer than I had to !!
So here are a couple of shots I hope you enjoy I sure haven’t lol !!
