A Sparkling Photoshoot {Macro Raindrops}

Hello, dears!

I’m back again with some photography while we wait to see who won the giveaway! πŸ˜‰ Hee hee. But guys, thank you all SO much for your wonderful comments and excitement about my book – I can’t tell you how much it means to me. ❀ I’ll link the recent blog tour posts at the end of this post, but for now… how about some macro raindrop photography?

I must say, this photoshoot includes some of my favorite nature pictures I’ve taken in a while – and they’re not even autumn-themed. Shocking! XD I hope you enjoy this refreshing dose of bejeweled webs, garden plants, and flowers.

After the Rain: Garden Photography

Hello, dears!

These kinds of posts are some of my favorite to make, as you might know if you’ve been around here a while. πŸ˜‰ Today I have a bunch of pretty nature photography for you, including butterflies, flowers, and raindrops found in our garden.

I took these photos the day after a glorious, answer-to-prayer rain finally came to end a summer drought. When you’re a farmer whose main key to success (the right weather) is totally out of your control, it teaches you dependence on God like nothing else, and also makes you so excited about rain that you’re riveted to the window, the weather app, and the rain gauge like they’re the most suspenseful movie ever. πŸ˜›

Everything was so beautiful and fresh the next day that I kinda just dropped everything and took a bunch of pictures. XD I hope you enjoy the results!

A Walk in the Wildflowers

Hello, dears!

My sister Megan and I planted a TON of flowers this year. We were skeptical at first about whether they’d work since we hadn’t tried wildflowers here before… but wow, did they grow! We now have two little wildflower patches overflowing with blooms, plus a longer stretch of flowers near the end of our family’s garden. And, knowing me, you’ll not be surprised to hear that I have taken tons of pictures. πŸ˜‰

I’ve narrowed down some of my favorite pictures to show you guys today, including a goodly selection of macro photography. I hope you enjoy these bright and colorful beauties at the golden hour!

Garden Reflections

Hello, dears!

Nope, this post isn’t going to be deep thoughts about gardening or anything. Just some pretty macro raindrop photography. πŸ˜‰

As you probably know if you’ve followed me for a little while, water drops are one of my favorite photography subjects, and this time I even managed to capture a few upside-down reflections in the droplets – even better! I hope you enjoy this lush photoshoot!

Minty Fresh {Field Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

Before I start this post, I just wanted to say thank you all SO much for your lovely birthday wishes! I had a wonderful day filled with love from friends and family, fun gifts, delicious food, a lovely walk in the woods, and a movie night. πŸ™‚ I can’t believe I’m 19. O.o And yes, I will hopefully post about my birthday gifts next, because I know you guys enjoy those posts (as do I). πŸ˜‰ So stay tuned!

But for now, I am SO excited to show you guys this photoshoot! I looked out the window one morning and saw that the wheatfield across the lane looked silver. It had just rained and the sun caught the bedewed wheat in a breathtaking way. I dropped everything and took heaps of pictures of all the little wonders I found at the edge of the field -including a large amount of ladybugs and water drops, which made for some amazing photos!

Have fun browsing through these minty-hued pictures!

Signs of Spring {2019}

Hello, dears!

It is now March, that agonizing month when the sun shines brighter, things start growing, and spring finally seems around the corner… until we get a big snow at the end of the month. -_- Heh heh. Who knows whether the snow will happen this year, but for now, I’m just enjoying the signs of spring while they last! Enjoy these sunny pictures, my friends!

Macro Raindrops

Hello, dears!

A couple of days ago I ventured out into the miserably cold and rainy weather to take some pictures for you guys. It wasn’t very comfortable, but the results were worth it! πŸ˜› I mainly used my macro lens extension tubes to get lovely close-ups of the jewel-like raindrops that coated everything like frost.

If you’re in need of some spring-y, fresh green in the middle of a dull winter, read on! πŸ˜€
