Web Photos That I Like

One of the challenges associated with designing perennial gardens is photographing them after they are planted. Very few successful gardeners are able to transfer their talents to the camera. Somehow, gardens don’t like photographers. Pictures of perennial compositions are never as impressive as the image that we see with the naked eye. Perhaps that is why renowned photographers who garden choose to post close-up images of individual flowers instead.

Recently, I received a comment on my blog from a reader who accomplished the almost impossible. He has taken impressive photographs of a perennial garden. Above is one example of his work. Click on the image to see additional beautiful pictures.

You are exactly right. I love flowers and according to all my friends do a pretty good job of creating beautiful spots in my garden. I also do flower arrangements, but the most difficult thing is to get a good picture of them. I usually invite friends, who are better at photography, than myself, and this way I can get some good pictures. Some of them are on my blog, that I just recently created. Would love to hear your opinion.
I also found that Apple Macintosh has a built in program that does very good job of editing photos.
