Coneflower Dreams

    Newer Older

    I took some normal macros of these grayhead prairie coneflowers but wasn't really satisfied with the results. Then I noticed some bright sky coming through a hole in the trees to the north and used the bright sky as a background. I spent a long time looking for some nice flowers to use in the out-of-focus background areas. This is one where I took much more time on the background than the foreground.

      I find this shot almost mesmeric in its beauty - I really like the high key-ish, misty effect you've achieved here and the perfect composition
