Golden Poppy

Golden Poppy

As springtime nears, the blooming wildflowers start appearing everywhere. I've never been a a big fan of flower photos, but as I walked through a a field of flowers in Texas Hill Country, I began to see the beauty in the detail I would normally take for granted. I treaded lightly through the field to find the healthiest looking flower and laid down next to it. The small folds in the petals and the grainy pollen caught my eye and I immediately grabbed my camera. I had to choose my lens carefully so I could get as close as possible to the flower and capture all the detail I could see with my own eye. I attached a special lens that allowed me to inch closer to the Poppy. As I released the shutter I knew that this was a unique photo, the clouds made the scene look like it was taken in a studio, not out in a dirt field. This photo has always encouraged me to look close at the finer things I might otherwise overlook everyday in life.
