A Photographic Cliche – Wildflowers

I can’t help myself.  I’m a nature and outdoors photographer.  That means I shoot a lot of wildflowers.  Yeah, it’s a cliche, but sometimes they are just so lovely I can’t pass them by.  This year I’m trying to capture the quality of light as well as the flowers themselves and so far it’s been pretty good, like the purple trillium shot from the last post.  Here are some more.

Marsh Marigold


Wood anemone

So far so good.  Others are out, too, like wild oats and gold thread, but right now I’m concentrating on shooting flowers I don’t have good images of yet and I have some of those.   More are coming like lady slippers, lilies, irises and fringed polygala (one of my favorites) and so more cliches are headed your way.  You’ve been warned!

  1. I take pictures of wildflowers, too. I don’t think good wildflower pics are ever cliche. Wildflowers in nature never are, right? 🙂 Love the first photo.

  2. I guess I’m going to be a walking cliche for at least the next month or two. Can’t wait!

  4. thanks folks. I continue to shoot them even though I know it’s been done 1000 times. They’re still beautiful.
