Spring Flowers, Longwood Gardens Photowalk
 
Dolores and I spent a day at Longwood Gardens to enjoy and photograph the spring flowers.   Longwood Gardens is located in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, just west of Wilmington, Delaware.  With over 1,100 acres of gardens and a very large Conservatory, this is a world class travel destination.  We are members and try to attend all of the major annual exhibits.
We took several hundred photographs.  In is always good to have your camera in hand to capture the colors of the season.

Petunias are blooming in Kentlands
 
You do not always need unusual flowers to add color to your planters and your gardens. A few petunias might do the job for you and they are available in a variety of colors. I like the petunias because the colors make wonderful photographs.
Be sure to have your camera in hand for your neighborhood photowalks. Enjoy the colors of spring.

An important part of my regular exercise program is walking through Kentlands, our home community in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  The walks are usually extended to Lakelands, the adjoining neighborhood.   The exercise becomes photowalking when I have my camera in hand.

Spring Flowers in the Rain
Those of us that enjoy flower photography have our favorite times for taking the best pictures.  We love the morning light for flower photographs and prefer cloudy days that have not deep shadows. 
In the spring, we frequently have spring showers that make the flowers grow.  Photographers love to go out between the showers to capture flower images that show the droplets of rain reflected by the light.  Some photographers cheat a bit and carry a spray bottle to create extra water droplets as desired.
These are some of the flowers in home garden after this … (32 comments)

Photowalking through Kentlands - Azaleas are blooming this week
On Tuesday, Dolores was on the golf course and I was taking a photowalk through Kentlands, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, to enjoy the colors of spring.  This week, the featured blooms are azaleas.  And, the azaleas are just beautiful!  It appears that the mild Maryland winter and early spring has created the beauty that we are now able to appreciate in the community.
