One of my favorite passtimes in spring is seeing what different flowers are in bloom in different areas. I love walking trails and photographing different wildflowers. There seems to be a never ending show of different varieties of flowers, always a new variety taking over when the previous one is done. And then there are the cultivated gardens that are just as beautiful - walks through cultivated gardens provide a mass variety of flowers in a more condensed area. And of course there are many cross-over varieties of flowers that I can find in both settings.
In early June during a getaway weekend, I had the opportunity to get out to enjoy a walk in the woods to photograph wildflowers.
Iris' are commonly found in gardens, but I love these yellow iris' that I find out along the banks of stream.
I then proceeded to some local gardens and was not disappointed with the varieties of flowers I had to photograph!
Wild (aka red) columbine is a beautiful flower I find out in the wild during my walks in the woods. I don't typically see it in gardens.
All photographs were taken with a Canon 6D with a Sigma 105mm macro lens
