Columbine Conundrum

June 24, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I love photographing Columbine.  Unfortunately, their varied shades of color, graceful tendrils drifting downward, and fluffy, delicate petals often leave me undone in creating a successful effort.  In a perfectly angled shaft of of sunlight they are beautifully translucent....but with just a quiver of wind, they are unfocused.  Put too many of these beauties together....and the shot appears cluttered as all that upward-downward-fluffiness runs from one flower to another.  Sigh.  But their unique and multi-faceted shape calls me back so that I continue striving towards that perfect columbine portrait of greatness!
