Gorgeous lilies and superb photography! I am wondering what camera you use... Do you use Photoshop? Your picture look so professional.

Lilies and Daylilies. I can think of nothing more Festive -- pun intended. You saw and captured some beauties.

Lona, the lilies are beautiful. Such rich colors and textures.... :)

Lona said...

Chris: They had so many in bloom this year and I took so many pictures that I will never get them all up. LOL!

Darla: I thought the Garden Shed was so cute. I would love it in my yard.

Sweetbay: Thank you. It was a fun day for certain. Flowers and camera, what could be better. LOL!

Kim & Victoria: Needless to say the gardening "want list" continues to grow. LOL!

Jenni: Girl the gardens were spectacular this year. I was in lily Heaven. LOL!

Nell: There were just so many kinds and other blooms to look at. My head was spinning around trying to catch everything.

Masha: Thank you. I use a Cannon Rebel. I do not use Photoshop. I take so many pictures that I get lucky and get a good shot once in a while.

Cher: I cannot wait to see your lilies. Can never get enough of them.

thanks for sharing your trip to Lilyfest. I would like to add more purples and lavenders and pinks into my daylily bed. So pretty.

Jennifer and Steve said...

Kate @ Gardening and Gardens said...

Gorgeous! It must be that time of year - I just posted about lilies too ;) That second one from the top is spectacular.

Love those lilies. They seem to strike a pose when the camera slides by.

Hi Lona, I have found that it pays to see lilies in a garden setting when making a selection, rather than trusting the pictures in a catalogue. You certainly have seen some beautiful ones at Lilyfest!

Lona said...

Bogusia: Cieszę się, że podoba Ci się lilie i dziękuję za porzucenie przez.

Jennifer: I know what you mean about trusting pictures. LOL! I wish they would have had name tags on the lilies though.

Kate: I love this time of the year when the lilies are in bloom. Some of the garden is waning off so the lilies add to the beds.

GreenApplesGarden. Hi. I love experimenting with the light and angles when taking pictures. Sometimes it works out well. Thanks for dropping by.

Jennifer: I do not have a regular macro lens and I mostly use my Canon 75-300 for the closeups. Of course I have to be at a distance to get the shots which sometimes makes it tough when there are crowds of people around. LOL!

Janet: I noticed that most of their lilies ran in the orange to peach varieties.
So they must be fond of that color palette. They were beautiful together though.

Jen: Thanks a lot. I am honored that you think so with you being such a great photographer.

Lona said...

Giga: Nie mogłem wybrać tylko jedną gdybym albo. Wszyscy byli dla mnie piękna.

Landbohaven: Hello and Thank you for stopping by.

Sage Butterfly: I will get right on that. LOL!
