Natural Compositions

Natural Compositions.

As often as we photographers try, we can’t match the natural symmetry offered up by Mother Nature. When I saw these waterlily I couldn’t help but think that as hard as I try, I could never do a better job of creating this composition. It is just my hope I capture it properly on my sensor.

Lots of inquiries and some activity on our Gibbs Gardens Waterlily Workshop yesterday. Cecil is telling me that we have just a few spots left. Don’t forget that Gibbs Gardens is having a photo contest that will be displayed during the Waterlily Festival in October. This is a great chance to get a couple of final images captured before the deadline. I know at least one of the judges really likes waterlily…
