One of my favorite things to photograph is flowers. They can really be beautiful and inspirational at the same time. They remind me that God cares for me because if He can make them so well adorned and lovely, He will provide for me too!
A friend recently gave us some giant lily bulbs. They didn't look too awe inspiring at first, but we planted them in a new berm in the back yard and last spring they came up. By mid-summer they had blossomed in some spectacular ways. They are further down the page.
I didn't correct any of these photos in Photoshop. They are shown just the way they came out of the camera (EOS 20D Canon). All were taken outdoors in natural light.
