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 !!
Here is a shot from a recent session, instead of people I actually had some time to get out and shoot flowers, this doesn’t happen very much these days so I better take advantage of this. These weren’t shot at some far out wilderness destination,but actually came from my own backyard here in Madison Indiana, so if I got a little hot I could go back inside and sit in the AC for a while….I know I am soft !!
Most the flowers in my yard have pretty much bit it for the season because of the heat and lack of rain, but my coneflowers must love these type of conditions because they seem to flourish in them. Once again instead of just shooting this flower I tried to get a little more adventurous and shoot them with an artistic feel, hopefully I was able to convey that to you and you enjoyed my take on this often photographed subject.
Coneflowers are a can’t miss subject if you are into photographing flowers, they have a beautiful color and structure and are relatively close to eye level so you don’t have to kill your back bending over to photograph them. Just be mindful of your background as not to add too much cover and shoot them wide open for that artistic feel!!
