Wildflower Photography Expedition


I was given a project by a friend who has created a most wonderful ministry called the WildFlower Gathering.

He gave me a project to go and capture the beauty of God’s creation through the wildflowers that were popping out a few weeks ago. I love projects. So my husband, daughter and I went on a hike up in Heil Valley Ranch in Boulder, CO and sought out all the little flowers we could find. As we began our hike, I didn’t see any flowers at first glance. But as I began to look more closely, I discovered some BEAUTIFUL things! Neatly tucked here and there, I found color and texture!

Some of these flowers were smaller than my fingernail, hardly seen from the trail. It made it even more fun to hunt for different kinds and being surprised by what I found. My 6 year old daughter of course only last about 10 minutes and wandered aimless and tired. I showed her the flowers I found and hope to show her a different way of seeing them.

The lens highlights the edges of the smooth petals, the tiny hairs on the stalk of a leaf, the bumpy texture on a single seed. I had a most wonderful time! Thanks Dale, for the project and for supporting the art of what I love to do.

I love the delicate pink-tipped petals still unfolding on this one.

God’s fingerprints are all over! How often do we just pass by? I’m thankful for the opportunity to get down close to the ground and explore His fine detail. :) This is joy.
