Open Field
Open Field


I never realized that I do like buttercups.  So cheerful and only appearing this time of year.  Glad I thought to seek some.

Well, I certainly LOVE your buttercup shots! Love the combination of the wide shot,the open field,dotted with yellow amidst the green and purples - and then the up-close views Wonderful texture application on "Yellow".

I love buttercups too, but have never succeeded in capturing them the way I want to. They are so shiny that the color always appears washed out, and the highlights just go white. These are beautiful - they remind me how much I miss fields full of wildflowers.

Ahhhh, very soothing.

You just reminded me that I took a pix with my cell phone of a nice, golden yellow field, I gotta go find that!

OMGoodness Susan, I am so in love with the last photograph here. So beautiful!

You are right about where we are with what is in bloom. I never really noticed buttercups until a couple of years ago. They bloom near our pond, and the pond makes a wonderful background for photographing them.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Lovely......did you pick a buttercup and hold it under your chin to see if it reflects on your skin and reveals if you love butter or not? It would make an interesting selfie, I think. :) Hope you have a great week.

I'm usually not a big fan of flower photos but these shots are outstanding! Great photography!

I love this post - few things make my heart sing more than a field of wildflowers in bloom, and I love this mix of purple and yellow with the soft green of the grass.

Great effect on that last one, it looks like a beautiful painting!
