Beauty never looked this good
Natural wildflowers are pretty hard to come by, so when I saw this one in central Illinois, I couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures. Flowers somehow have a way of making people feel happier, and more comfortable. They make an especially nice addition in the winter, in cold areas. You take one look at a picture like this and it’s hard not to want spring to arrive.
Sometimes wildflowers can be the most beautiful things to photograph. They’re simple yet elegant, and they can offer a colorful contrast to the sea of green around them. I particularly like the dramatic way this flower melts from a deep violet color into a soft pale blue. Simple enough not to overwhelm, yet powerful when compared to the background.
