Spring is coming! Even in my city, the vegetation is still dormant, but it will only be a few days more until the winter frost is over. I have here some of my photos of flowers, taken mostly last year, as I wait for the new bloom!
Let’s begin with some wild flowers. These photos were taken two years ago in Switzerland, using my Lomo LC-A that I took with me during my summer bicycle tour. The wild nature is protected and respected; these flowers were in a protected corner in the midst of cultivated fields.
Another photo taken in Switzerland (with my LC-A), not far from the wild flowers. Sunflowers are true friends of amateur photographers…they are never in backlight!
An old photo taken with a Praktica LB using a Fuji Velvia in the Swiss Alps. The fragility of the stems of these flowers invite to respect this natural wonder!
Photo with a dreamy effect taken using my Diana F+ in Alassio:
Another photos taken in Alassio, this time with my Lomo LC-A.
This are my preferred photos of flowers. It was taken on my balcony in strong backlight, with my Diana F+. The effect is dreamlike and slightly visionary.
Caorle is a beautiful seaside town of the Venetian lagoon. Its municipal administrators have decorated the lampposts with beautiful flower pots, that I took with my LC-A.
Meinau, the flower island, is located on Lake Constance in Germany, few kilometres from the Swiss border. With my SuperHeadz I got this beautiful set of flowers.
Reichenau, UNESCO World Heritage, few kilometres from Constance. Wonderful wild flowers in the foreground, with a beautiful church in the background.
A beautiful park where take a break in the summer season, with a bunch of flowers in the foreground that I took during bicycle tour around Lake Constance.
Lindau, always on Lake Constance. Flowers in front of the church. A very hot season, even the flowers have suffered the high temperatures!
Flowers in homage to those who have left this earth. A photo taken in Meiringen, Switzerland with my Lomo LC-A.
The last three photos were taken in Sicily, in the South of Italy, at the beginning of January 2013. In the north of Italy there were still snow and ice, but here I found flowers and green trees in the Temple Valley!
