Dandelion Dreams

When you see those ugly yellow “weeds” on your lawn, take a second look with your camera in hand. Dandelions are very delicate and detailed flowers, and make great photographic subjects!

The water droplets are clinging to the feathery strands that make up a Dandelion seed, allowing it to float through the air. Placed in behind the droplets is a single Dandelion, framed in black to stand out.

A difficult shot to align, this image is made entirely hand-held to grab the exact perfect angle that would have been inaccessible if using a tripod.

Even the common, overlooked and under-appreciated weeds can showcase depth and beauty.
