I have had a lot of fun taking pictures of plants that have strong structural lines. Sometimes a plant can be beautiful to look at but I have a hard time capturing the beauty with my camera. The resulting images can be disappointing but this particular plant did not disappoint. I love the way the leaves create beautiful lines and the dramatic way they catch the light. I haven’t been able to identify most of the plants but will update the post as I learn. I couldn’t decide which image I liked the best so I included two.
The next image is of a palm font. This also has a dramatic way of reflecting light and was fun to photograph. There wasn’t much I could do in editing to make it more dramatic.
Here is the palm that it grows on.
On two different days, I admired the combination of these blue and yellow flowers but the images I took didn’t have the same impact that they did when I was standing by them. Then I noticed the piece of fence and decided to photograph that with the flowers. The geometric lines of fence was just what I needed to emphasize the delicate beauty of these flowers and the beautiful color combination.
