Some of my Favourite Images

I am continuing to show pictures taken by Jake many years ago. Some,if not all of these have appeared on my blog before,but I still enjoy them,so I trust you will as well.
Today I have more pictures than usual,so words will be few.
Sit back and enjoy a few of my favourite photos of flowers,as captured by Jake Hiebert.

A Tulip drenched in raindrops.


Zooming out while holding the shutter button down.


Getting up close and personal with a Sunflower.


This is a wildflower,called Harebells.


Lady Slipper growing in a ditch not far from where I live.



Acres of sunflowers.


I love the dreamy look of this shot.


More Tulips.


The Prairie Crocus,Manitoba's flower emblem.


What's not to love about the simple Wild Rose/


Daisies,both white and coloured.


A springtime display of Tulips in the park at Portage La Prairie,Manitoba.

Trying to find the words to describe nature's beauty,
is like trying to measure the moon with a yardstick.

  1. All of these are absolutely fantastic. I couldn't pick a favorite if I had to, but the first picture with the raindrops on the tulip is beautiful.

  2. Oh My..... Jake's photos are FANTASTIC.... I cannot pick a favorite, but like George, that first one gave me pause. I also love the sunflowers ---but you know how much I love sunflowers.

  3. I've seen those acres of sunflowers!! So amazing! Makes me want to pick up a package of 'spits' as the kids call them! - I need to dispose of my poinsettia and buy some tulips! Meanwhile I can look at all of yours for free! Thanks!

  15. When I saw that first tulip, I thought, "Ah, Spring!" Those pictures are all extra special. I definitely want to try to take one of those "zooming in" pictures once we have flowers around here again. Photography can be so much fun, but sometimes I need some new inspiration. Thanks for sharing Jake's pictures.
