Yard Surfing Blues

Blue Flower Base

This image was created using a DSLR and an 18 – 105 lens. The ISO was 400 exposed for 1/20 sec @f/8.

Was out yard surfing on Saturday and hadn’t really looked for anything blue with which to photograph until at one yard sale, while waiting for my wife, I noticed this tree. I really became entranced with it; the way the vines came up the trunk, the darkness of the background and the couple of red spots in the tree itself. Then I noticed that at the base were these little blue wild flowers and I went “ah ha!”.

Well, as you can see, it did wind up being a Yard Surfing Blues photograph to add to my collection. The blue flowers, which I have used before, made it eligible and I’m glad I went ahead and created this image.

Yard surfing is fun, and sometimes we come home with some good bargains, but what I like best is seeing something, that others would miss, and turn it into a photograph that is interesting to view, and I believe the Blue Flower Base photograph fits into that category…

  1. Great shot Glenn. You've balanced the lighting on the tree beautifully. I can totally see why you like the different elements in this photo!
