The Garden in Black and White

Flowers in black and white. A different way to view our natural world. Seeing form over color. An artistic way to interpret our gardens. Seeing things differently, that is what photography should be about. http://www.debra-hunter.com Photography by Debra Hunter Red Deer, Alberta and Pender Island, BC, Canada . . . .

This painting that I completed this summer at a en plein air event at the Coutts Centre near Nanton, Alberta seemed like a fitting image for today. The poppy will forever be a symbol linked with Remembrance Day.

Summer Up Close

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been negligent with blogging this summer, being outside, going to the pool and playing tennis has taken priority over sitting in front of a screen. As we haven’t been able to use our cabin this summer we have taken to rediscovering places in our city.

Recently we went for an afternoon walk at Heritage Ranch (Red Deer, Alberta, Canada). It has been ages since we have been there in the summer months, usually it is a spot we go for a winter walk. As we looked across to the fishing pond we were treated to visits by multiple butterflies, dragonflies and other small creatures.

It’s always fun to see if you can capture an image of the butterflies flitting from flower to flower. On this particular day they were quite cooperative.

Some of the butterflies also decided to show off a bit and pose upside down.

Not to be forgotten, the ant had to get in on the pictures as well. Quite a fun shot I think.

It’s always amazing to look at macro images as you get to examine details close up and see the intricacies of the world around us.
