Here are two photos of reflections of flowers though dew drops. The dew is sitting on a blade of ornamental grass. The flowers are Matrix Orange Asiatic Lilies, and are right behind the grass. The background in both photos is actually from the flower: the orange from the petals, the maroon from the stamens, and the light green from the buds, which are cone shaped.

 

The first photo is actually the effect I was trying for, with a nice reflection of the flowers in a dew drop. However I also included the second photo because I liked the colors and the effect was quite a bit different than in the first photo. The "drop" in the second photo is actually fairly flat, and contains a bunch of colors and interesting shapes that I'm not sure where they came from (other than the orange from the flower petals).

 

Give it a try yourself! Basically the camera lens, the water drop, and the flower all have to be lined up, or fairly close to it. I believe the sun needs to be behind you and low. I tried this yesterday and couldn't get good reflections, I believe because the sun was more overhead. The photos today were taken relatively early in the morning. I took the photos with a macro lens, but other lenses should work. Try different apertures. You want to shoot as wide open as possible (to get that nice background blur), while at the same time maintaining good focus on the leaf and drops.

 

I like this photo better than the second one, but check that one out as well.

Miscanthus sinensis plumes grow even in freezing temps here in Minnesota.. I just loved how it looked with the sun shining on it and the wind blowing it's feathery plumes .

 

Thanks so much to everyone for your wonderful comments!! I really appreciate them!!! ; )

This is the main garden with the pond, beyond the arbor is the butterfly garden and more flowerbeds.

Photo was taken on a cloudy day.

Names of flowers are in my tags.

After the rain yesterday, I went out shooting. No waterdroplets here, but a great, dreamy background of the sun breaking through the trees in the woods behind me. I also love the changes in the ornamental grasses that spring seems to be bringing.

Bet you can't guess what this is; a seed tangle in ornamental grass. I loved how it looked in the sunshine.

There's another plant below showing more clearly these tangles, but I have no idea what they're called.

Sometimes, when I can't find anything to shoot, I just sit down in the yard somewhere and take shots of whatever I see around me. It's surprising what you see, sometimes...

Macro Monday's Theme Ethereal. Dictionary description: Very delicate and light,heavenly or spiritual.

This is a macro of an ornamental grass that I brought in from my garden. It was all but buried under several feet of snow. Of course it is dry and dead but made a great subject for this theme.

Please click on L to see finer details.

Happy Macro Monday.

HMM

Taken from 2 weekends ago, when I was chasing the sunrise in Baltimore city. This was in one of the marinas but this is actually a potted plant and there were some white christmas lights on the top rail of a fence that I caught here, and not the sun. But I thought it looked neat

Becky hates the ornamental grass that I planted a few years ago, but I look forward to seeing the seedheads at this time of year...so there...

This afternoon the light was amazing. recommended: large on black

November prepares us, it prepares us for the season that follows...

Every season has its own color palette. In the Winter, the golden tones of dried grasses and the translucent, icy blue of the Winter sky are two of my favorites.

This ornamental grass was taken behind my pond

I always leave my grasses till spring for some protection for the birds

also for some texture in our bare garden,

I love when they start getting gold tones.

I hope your Monday is a great one,

Much needed shade from the sun while sitting on a bench for rest, no not me I am always on the move:-)

Happy Sunday!

Most of the flowers are not up yet even the waterlilies are very small, the weather here is not helping,

We have bellow normal temperatures, we need some warm weather for all to fill-up.

Please see how the garden looked 2 years ago on July.

Yesterday was a beautiful day when I took this picture while waiting at the school bus stop... This is about to change by the weekend as we're expecting a heavy snow storm. I hope that's not the case! Photographically, it may not be a bad thing as i'm a little tired of taking autumn images.

Let's just say i may very well need a vintage lens intervention.... this lens is amazing

Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln'

 

- Pennisetum alopecuroides (Chinese Pennisetum, dwarf fountain grass, foxtail fountain grass, swamp foxtail grass) is a species of perennial grass native to Asia and Australia.

Fountain Grass is one of the most popular grasses. The 'Hameln' selection forms an upright mound of arching green leaves, bearing bottlebrush spikes of silvery-white flowers that turn to buff or tan as they dry.

'Hameln' refers to the German town of Hamelin, most famous for the folk tale of the Pied Piper.

 

- Pennisetum Alopecuroides (lampenpoetsersgras) komt van nature voor in Azië en Austalië. Het is een bolgroeiend siergras.

De cultivar 'Hameln' bloeit zeer rijk met bloeiaren die bestaan uit prachtige lichtbruine borstels welke boven de bladeren uitsteken. Bloeitijd is van juli t/m september, de pluimen blijven tot aan het eind van de winter zitten en worden steeds meer zilvergrijs van kleur.

'Hameln', want deze soort werd gekweekt in de Duitse plaats Hamelen, bij een ieder bekend door het sprookje/volksverhaal van Grimm over de rattenvanger.

Last night and through the AM we received a sizable thunderstorm. After the rain stopped I took a photo walk around the neighborhood and this ornamental grass caught my eye.

Quaking Grass or Rattlesnake Grass after a spring rain.

last year's dried out ornamental grass :)

Goodbye to summer, for now.
