Spring ephemerals are the first wildflowers to appear in early spring. If you have a chance for a quiet walk in the woods, keep an eye out for diminutive, delightfully delicate flowers. Let's take a look at bloodroot, trout lilies, and other ephemeral varieties. Their beauty is fleeting!

Pink Joy

Pink Joy

  • Digital Photography
  • 800 pixels x 688 pixels
  • NFS

I'm in love with flowers, especially after a cold and dreary winter. Waiting and anticipating their emergence, trees slowly waking and exploding with beauty. These deliciously pink and delicate blossoms are a beautiful reminder that change will come, beauty is there, you just have to be open to it. These apple blossoms are always a favourite of mine and quite often I'm either too early or too late to digitally capture their beauty. Wind or rain can easily throw a wrench in your mini photo shoot plan, so carpe diem is a great motto when looking to capture these beauties. Here's to another year of seizing the day!

To the Centre

To the Centre

  • Digital Photography
  • 800 pixels x 800 pixels
  • NFS

Tulips, are uplifting for our soul, preparing us for brighter, sunnier days. My eye is always searching for beauty in its many forms and the beauty of a flower is something I just cannot resist. Getting up close and personal yields wonderful nuances in colour and shape reminding us that flowers are perfect masterpieces meant to be treasured. I love the centres of tulips and really enjoy taking these macro shots and hope one day to have a whole series of paintings devoted to these gems.

Unfurling

Unfurling

  • Digital Photography
  • 800 pixels x 460 pixels
  • NFS

The magic of nature's way is always a wonderful experience. Watching a flower unfurl it's petals to reveal its full display is magical. I couldn't resist not capturing this fleeting moment with anticipation of following its natural progression over its short life cycle. A reminder to all that we should really enjoy each moment. Tulips especially change over the course of their life cycle. The vibrant hues often dulled near the end, though having transformed into a more relaxed and carefree version of itself. Life lessons.

Dreams of Spring

Dreams of Spring

  • Macro Photography
  • 16" x 20"
  • $160

I love taking macro photos of my orchids. I find the lines so sensual and graceful, and even though it is the cold nights that help trigger the blooms, the colours of this one makes me think of Spring and Easter.

Orchid Visions

Orchid Visions

  • Photography / Digital Art
  • 16" x 20"
  • $160

This is a macro shot of one of my blooming orchids. In post-editing, I triple exposed the flower, pivoting and blending the layers to create the final image.

Geraniums

Geraniums

  • ICM Photography
  • 16" x 20"
  • $160

This is an ICM photo of my geraniums in their cedar planter. ICM is a fun photography technique and stands for Intentional Camera Movement. This shot has been created entirely in-camera. The photographer plays with exposure and aperture and intentionally moves the camera back and forth, in sweeping movements, or zooms the lens in and out while using different lengths of exposure to create artistic effects.
