Nature's Beauty

The poetry of the earth is never dead.  ~John Keats

I was recently asked where I go to shoot my photos.  The answer is really not far at all.  I am fortunate enough to live in a rural area.  An area where there is access to wildlife on a daily basis. The area is surrounded by woods, creeks and country roadsides filled with wild flowers.

I am also in walking distance of a nearby river which allows even more access to nature.  I believe that there is beauty everywhere especially in nature.  Sometimes the beauty just needs to be shown from a different point of view.

A plant may be seen by many as just an annoying weed.  For instance, the Arctium lappa (Greater burdock) is such a plant that many see as a mere weed. Yet when photographing that plant in bloom, Mother Nature’s art work shines through magnificently with purplish blooms.  I especially enjoy photographing plants that are classified as weeds because I see a different side, the artistic side of the plant.  When there is an insect on this plant, the beauty is immediately made greater.

I am a firm believer that one doesn’t need to travel a great distance to see nature’s beauty.  Nature’s beauty can be viewed by opening your eyes as well as your heart.

Peace always,

Rebecca
