Texture Twist: September Wildflowers


I love to wander on the weekends. You never what you may discover when you've put your smart phone and agenda away. I found these lavender blooms growing along a buffalo pasture. I'm not quite sure what they are, but their color and spiky texture are intriguing. Where have you wander to lately?

  1. We have something similar here but they are yellow. I wonder if they are in the same family? Love the top shot with the contrast of the wood.

  3. Love the color of this, and the wood backdrop is great, but like the edited one also with the close-up. Seems I tend to stray toward closeups or macro. Glad I found your blog again, and in time for Texture Twist. I usually miss it. haha
    Have a great week.

  8. You can take an ordinary flower but against the right backdrop and with the right photographer it becomes extraordinary!
