Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Nature…sunflower

Where does the time go?  We’re already beginning a new month, which means today’s theme is once again, “Nature.”  My entry this week is seasonal, depicting harvest, end-of-the-summer-coming-of-fall, and the glorious sunshine colors of summer. And today is Labor Day in the United States, a day when we both honor labor and rest from it.  I hope you have time to spend outside, enjoying the beauty of nature, today and every day.

Other than the border, I’ve done no editing whatsoever on this photo.

    What a great shot to capture with a phone.

  2. Oh my gosh. I’ve just got a new smartphone and you have inspired me to discover what I can do with it photography-wise. This is simply amazing for a phone photo!

    • That sort of comment means a lot to me, so thank you. The main reason we got iPhones, our first smartphones, was for the cameras. The Galaxy is supposed to have a great camera, too, but many of them are good now. The best thing is that you can get rid of what you don’t like at no cost. 🙂 All the best and enjoy! Being able to have a camera with you at all times is wonderful!

    Fantastic image Janet — clearly you were at the right place in the right moment, to capture the sunny flower and friend. Delightful 🙂

    • Being there at the right time has much to do with it, doesn’t it, Pat? I had to hold the camera up high to get the image, so I’m thrilled it turned out so well.


      • Pat says:

        I so get that — sometimes it’s also about perspective — actually, most of the time — and there is nothing like “shooting blind” — especially when the results are so wonderful 🙂

      • I thought it would be a good photo, but I think it’s a bit special. That’s always a good surprise, rather than the opposite!

      • Pat says:

        It *is* special — your feelings were spot on when you placed yourself and went “snap” … I really love it; sometimes it’s really the joy of having something work out just so right – like – actually – is “magic.” 🙂

  4. That’s a treat. I adore that you caught a grasshopper on the sunflower. Nicely captured. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • One of those lucky photos, Sally. I wanted to capture the flower and only when reaching up to take it did I discover the grasshopper. The two other visitors I didn’t see until I looked at the photo on my iPad when I got home (all my iPhone photos transfer there, which make them much easier to see!)

    No editing, Janet!
    It’s super! Rich & yellow! Wonderful shot!

  6. It’s so nice to have cameras right at hand now.
    One remarkable pix. Nice catch

    • I love being able to have a camera with me everywhere, although there things my Nikon would do better (once I learn how to use all of it!) So happy you liked the photo. I think it may be one of my better ones.

    I see I’m not the only one who loves sunflowers! Grasshoppers, bees and me.

  10. Angeline M says:

    Fantastic color and editing, Janet!
