Wildflowers1The roadside wildflowers are rich and beautiful at the moment. I can’t resist trying to capture compositions as we zip by.

    1. I am loving your soft focus floral landscapes, Yoshizen. Who can resist finding a way to photograph them? Thank you very much for your comment, I love this photographic process.

  1. Well I would rather say William Turner more dynamic than Monet ;P I think his mature style XD Impressive!!!

    1. Ah, well, Turner is a favorite of mine so I thank you for the comparison. : ) I’m so happy you like this, it’s part of a series I’m really enjoying working on.

  2. Before I saw comments from two others, I was also thinking Turner – something in the light and detail. But really it’s yours, no one else’s. And I really like it!

  3. Gosh that’s lovely! It’s like a Willaim Waterhouse painting with a distinct edge – even though it’s blurry! I would be snapping away too. A moving vehicle has never stopped me! Gorgeous, Karen! 🙂

    1. Gigi, I think to give these more of a Waterhouse feel I’d need you to model for me. You’d have to lie Victorian-like in a roadside field of flowers while I went by in a car ( passenger, of course!) over and over, snapping away and attempting to capture a decent composition. Too bad you are so far away! I’m pretty sure you’d be willing to collaborate. 🙂

      1. Hahaha!!! Ah yes, still, aside from the distance, I am excited about the collaboration! It gives me a chance to wear my mermaid outfit! … 🙂 xoxo

    1. I’m glad you like it, Richard, thank you! It’s such a fun process to try and make this sort of image work. I like the idea of photography referencing painting here.

  4. This has the magic qualities of impressionism and it just draws me right into it. Then, I feel like I have to explore for hours the richness and the beauty. Just wonderful!
