Backyard Flowers…Coneflower


Here are some images from my backyard flowers series and today’s subject is Coneflowers. These beautiful flowers have always been one my favorites to photograph they have a great photographic quality to them that lends to many hours of photography.

I really like the structure of the flower , from the erect posture of the flower itself to the long flowing petals in the bloom as well as the seed head that forms later. There are so many different ways to photograph this plant and they seem to last longer than any of my other flowering plants in my garden.

And then there is that incredibly vivid color that every plant has, truly one of the coolest blooms on any of all the cultivated flowers.

So if your looking for something to plant in your garden for looks and photographic quality you can’t go wrong with the coneflower. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and as always click on the images for best viewing !!

    Thanks for the tip! I’m always looking for easy, colorful things to put in my flower beds just for the purpose of having something to shoot when I get a new-to-me old camera.
