Flower of the Day: Tulips

With colors are so vibrant, the silky sheen on their petals.

I love how tulips signal that spring is officially here with such a grand celebration.

Here are my photos for Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge – Tulips. The tulips really opened up late in the day and darkened to a deeper purple toward the end of their blooming cycle.

A Photo a Week Challenge: The Rule of Thirds

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a lovely spring day. With the blossoms popping like popcorn, I just feel so blessed to be able to enjoy it all! 

This week’s challenge is using the rule of thirds (see Nancy Merrill Photography). The rule of thirds is a photography principle where you compose the visual image on the intersecting lines of the grid as shown:

I have to admit, I don’t use the principle all that much as I love front and center photographs. I do try to follow the rule and divide my landscape horizons by the thirds though.

Here are my two, I hope you like them!
