Seeing Stars

My husband and I took a walk at Willow Lake yesterday and discovered that our favorite trail was now surrounded by beautiful golden weeds, waving and billowing in the breeze. I took a couple iPhone shots and brought home a handful to photograph with my macro lens.  One of my current Flickr challenges is STARS, which I’m seeing everywhere in nature this week.  The iPhone photo below was edited in Snapseed and PixlrExpress.

This might be my favorite star photo of the day, edited in Snapseed only.

At home, I noticed stars within stars within stars in this flower (Queen Anne’s lace?) that I’ve been using in still life compositions (you’ll see them later this week). I took the photos below with my macro lens on my Nikon.

  3. Well, you did find some stars, didn’t you? And they are so beautiful! The Snapseed star is stunning, looks like fireworks. But my favorite is the last one. I love the tones, the shapes, to composition. Everything about it.
