Near Bliss

Posted by peter | Posted in Flowers, Landscape, Nature Photos, Summer | Posted on 10-03-2010

Taken 3.33 miles from the original location of “Bliss”, the Windows XP wallpaper.

I had planned to get a shot from the bliss location even though it is now all grapevines, but when using Google Earth, I had incorrectly estimated the direction of the original shot. When I arrived the sun was not in a favorable position and the sky was boring gray clouds beyond the landscape. So, while waiting for the sun to move and the clouds to change I did a bit of exploring in the nearby area and was able to get many shots in directions where the sky was better. Unfortunately the sky got progressively worse and I abandoned the effort to photograph an updated “Bliss” during this trip.

charming sunlit century plant

Posted by peter | Posted in Flowers, Nature Photos | Posted on 23-01-2010

It was a nice sunny day, I was walking along a park than I saw this. The sun was directly above the plant so it gave the image a golden glow.

This world has so unusual flower to be explore. Many are not yet discovered. They laid deep in the amazon rain forest. I’m unsure of this flower name b/c its my first time seeing it.

Does anybody know the name of this flower? Please let me know.
