Sunflowers and Water Lilies!

I have finally edited many of the sunflower and water lily photos from my "way too early in the morning" shoots.  Despite getting up and shooting before I'm actually awake, I loved every minute of it.  The sunflower field was eye catching to say the least.  So many bright and cheerful yellow sunflowers in one huge field.  It was amazing!  Even more amazing were the beautiful lotus and water lily ponds.  It was challenging finding flowers close enough to photograph.  The prettiest ones were sometimes in the middle of the pond, out of reach for the 70 - 300 zoom lens.  It was fun searching each pond for different varieties of these beautiful flowers.  After photographing them for the first time I have to say they are, without a doubt, my favorite flowers.  I have chosen some of the images I like the most to share with you.  Here they are.  I hope you enjoy them.


Have a nice week!
