Pink Colorado Columbine-5031


Good Morning!

So you walk out into your backyard and see this beautiful flower blooming and you say to yourself "I'm a photographer, and I would love to take a picture of this flower".
But there are a bizillion people out there with camera's taking pictures of flowers so how do I make this flower picture stand out from the crowd...?
So you try this angle, and that angle, and a higher angle and a lower angle, a closer angle, a more distant angle and nothing seems to "pop" in your viewfinder...

"Growl.... you say to yourself, this photography stuff is supposed to be relaxing and therapeutic, but all I am ending up with is a sore neck and back and I've scared away
every bird, bee and critter in the backyard...

Then suddenly... everything seems to say "WOW" this is that special image you were trying for.
