Flora-Florida #9

Robert G. Stalnaker May 15, 2008

Thank you for visiting my gallery.

My series on “Flora-Florida” is being done for the pure joy of being out in nature and showing photos of the flora of the state of Florida. The photos in this series are not meant to compete with indoor shots and digitally altered shots, even if I enter them into the contest. Outside, the wind blows. Detail may not be as perfect as a rose petal shot indoors, nor will the lighting. The lens may not even be a macro, if I was out to shoot birds that day with my telephoto and stumbled upon some flora to shoot. If I am able to get some “great shots”, that is a bonus. The real purpose is to get me into the wild, where I enjoy shooting both flora and fauna, and showing others some flora from the state of Florida. I find that the simple natural beauty in the real natural world rewards me.
