On my last post, I included a picture of some seeds floating away from a thistle flower. I liked that picture, but there was one part I was unhappy with–I had wished for a more even, green background behind the flying seeds. I went out the next day to try again and captured this image:
One of the most interesting things about photography is trying to capture an image that matches your vision. When photographing in nature, it’s often impossible to accomplish this. Try as I might, the birds refuse to listen to my direction and pose in the perfect spot. Thistle seeds and wind are equally difficult to direct, but this time I was lucky (and also persistent) and I did get the shot I was envisioning. I love when that happens!
