MID-WEEK COLORFUL DELIGHTS!

in photography •  last month 

IMG_5502-S.JPG

We have reached mid week and I am hoping to complete this post today or tomorrow. I continue to be busy with canning produce from garden and orchard. I canned 20 jars of plums last weekend. I picked more green beans and peas yesterday, and hope to start canning green beans this afternoon.


We normally do not see rain in July, August and most of September. Last year it was 90 days without rain. Over the weekend we received 3.3 centimeters of rain. It not only helped my garden, but it helped firefighters get control of some of the wildfires in the area. I have lived in this area for 37 years and do not recall seeing this much rain in the month of August before this.

I want to remind everyone about the "Neoxian City Photo Challenge!" a photography contest initiated by @zuku of neoxian-city. It is open to all stemians. Read the post carefully, because all entrants will win something. I just added another 1000 NEOXAG to the prize pool. I decided not to enter the contest, but instead as my way of thanking neoxian.city, I wanted to donate more NEOXAG to the prize pool. It is open to all stemians. I have seen some fantastic photos taken by my followers, using all types of cameras, so I am hoping you will enter the contest. For more detailed information check it out at:

https://steemit.com/neoxianphotochallenge/@zaku/neoxian-city-photo-challenge

I also encourage you to check out their Discord Server: Parliamentary City of Neoxian. In the event you are new to their Discord Server be sure and read the Welcome channel and read pinned message(s) there. You need to understand their rules. Read this before asking questions related to the rules. This can be a very active Discord Server...so enjoy.

Now to my first flower shown above...This is the original photograph with just some cropping to center it. I am learning a new photo editing software and later in the year will have this same photo posted with some added effects. I captured a spider on the rose, purely by accident. (I know @kathe-art does a good job of posted photographs with insects/Sé que @kathe-art hace un buen trabajo con fotografías de insectos). This rose just had to be placed first because of the unique coloring.

My next photo of the deer has been worked on with my new editing software so I thought I would share one of my practice photos and still share a deer photo from my game/trail camera:

I am not sure what flower this next one is. I do not think it is a sunflower, although it may be related:

IMG_5733-S.JPG

This next flower is a Zinnia. In years past I grew this variety of Zinnia and was amazed at its coloring.

IMG_5768_InPixio-S.jpg

I have mentioned in previous posts that I planted a nice selection of Sunflowers, most of which are of the size for cut-flowers. I was quite surprised when I spotted this next flower. I took a couple of photographs when it was cloudy and then went back yesterday when the sun was out. I really liked this one because the lighting was better. Some of these sunflowers are quite tall and to get the photo I want I had to bring out a step-ladder. I hope you enjoy this unique Sunflower:

As always I hope you find at least one thing in my post that you enjoy. Some tell me that all the photos are great, and I appreciate that feedback. I also know some have their favorites. I trust you will have a great rest of your week. And for those of you you take photographs please check out the contest above.

I am using a Canon EOS Rebel T5 for all of these photographs, except where noted.
NAMASTE

I continue to share information on @socialbot, which is a bid bot, raises money for @schoolforsdg4, and eventually additional social programs. You can use their bid bot or delegate to them. I am doing both.

Their link is https://steemit.com/@socialbot

I am getting a nice rate of return delegating to their cause, and I am paid daily. The maximum amount to pay when using the bid-bot is growing, albeit slowly. Growing is what counts because it is to help social programs.

Do not forget to use the tags for some of the new tokens I have talked about in other posts. Before using any of these or others as a tag, be sure it fits the intent of the token. Neoxian and palnet are general topic sites to post. Creativecoin is for artistic type posts. LASSECASH I am still trying to figure out. Using these tags when posting on steemit can help you earn money on the other three platforms, as well as steemit. If you vote on someone's post who uses these tags you probably already having earnings in respective wallets. If you have not done so, then look into those wallets and see. With the price of Steem being low the extra earnings from these other tokens can help a lot. There are other tokens that can be used as well, but these are the ones I focus on at this time. Log into steem-engine.com for information on other potential tags. Some tokens may not get very far, so be cautious before you invest in any of them, including those I like and use.

end of post graphic.png

As many of you already know I list a few charitable users that I try and support. Even though I am posting through Steemit today I have decided to not to add them as beneficiaries. This not to say that adding them is not worthwhile. I have decided not to use this feature because earnings are so low on steemit right now, and I have decided to send those programs who are using neoxian tags and staking at least some of their earnings more neoxian. I think building up their neoxian.city wallets can help them earn more for the future.

I have supported the following for quite awhile. Please check out their blogs and support them in anyway you can. Even small upvotes add up.

@aid.venezuela
@schoolforsdg4
@theunion
@womenempowerment

Each of these users have a unique service they provide and I applaud their good work. Thank you for considering them.

Such a wonderfull colors

Thank you very much.

Very beautiful flower. I am impressed with the red sunflower because I have never seen it in person, sir. And, to get the best shots to share with us until you use the stairs. Thank you also for other information such as contests, tags, bots, and your humble attitude that I admire, sir.🙏

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Impressive sunflower. I had not seen those tones in that flower.
The canning you do is in metal cans? do you have machines for that, or is it a rather handmade kind of canning?
Great editing of the deer picture. It makes it look engmatic.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I use jars made for homemade canning. I have seen those machines to can using metal cans, but have always used canning jars.

Flowers are among the nicest things on earth. Thanks for this gift. First and last flower is very attractive.

Thank you very much. I like to begin with and end with what I think is my better photos for the post. They usually are tied for which I think should go first.

Wao, 3.3 centimeters of rain is enough, it rained here today, I thought the afternoon would be cool but the heat is still strong.
I really like roses, but of all colors, since I was a teenager, my favorite is that soft orange color that your main photo has. I love!! and I also like blue roses, but I think that they put a dye in the water to make them blue.
The zinnia is very pretty ... and the sunflower, I was surprised, did not know that sunflowers of that color existed, it is beautiful and elegant.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it! I hope to have more variations of sunflowers. My patch is just beginning to bloom

Your rose has a very beautiful color!
I have a question, maybe you can help me:
My roses, with each bloom, the flowers are reduced in size.
What should I do to keep her flowers large?

Thank you. To get larger flowers you may want to add some compost. Ideally rich in Potassium and Phosphorus.

Thank you very much!!!

Nice photography and beautiful flowers . i like this flowers .

Hermosas fotografias @r2cornell. Gracias por compartir con nosotros ese concurso de NEOXIAN estaré pendiente para participar en el mismo. Saludos

Gracias....espero que mucha gente participe en el concurso de fotografía.

I enjoy your publications very much, they convey a lot of peace and love for nature. I understand the feeling of finding a special flower in the garden. It happened to me with the Lady at night, for me it was a big surprise, so I shared it in a publication of a short time ago. That sunflower is spectacular and unique, I had never seen it before. A great blessing. Greetings, friend @r2cornell.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I hope to have more unique sunflowers. I planted quite a mix. I have to try and get to the seeds before the birds so I can plant a larger patch next year, plus all of these varieties will cross

Wao what a great and impressive photography. All flowers looks so wonderful. 3rd one is my favourite in your photography. I m always enjoying your photograohy. Thanks for sharing us. @r2cornell.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Great photography so good to see these shots and enjoy the day

Thank you very much.

Gracias por nombrarme en su publicación sr. @r2cornell. Son muy bonitas las flores, pero mi favorita es la del venado. Me gustaría vivir en una casa donde me visitaran animales, así como te visitan a ti los venados. Aunque aquí en mi apartamento vienen pajaritos en la mañana y se paran en la ventana, a mi me gusta verlos y escuchar como cantan.

De nada. Me alegra que te gustara la foto de los ciervos. Tomé un par de fotos de un ciervo detrás de mi casa hace unos minutos. Todavía tengo que comprobar si las fotos eran claras.

Very productive days Cornell, I just picked a few kilograms of plums myself yesterday, they are getting ripe here in the Czech Republic too :) I love the photo of the deer.

Thank you very much. Our seasons must be similar for our plum trees ripening at the same time. I need to check my other tree to see how they are progressing.

Hello sir. I enjoy the pictures of your flowers. I prefer sunflower. Have a nice day.

Thank you very much.

It is always a pleasure to see the photos of your flowers. By his words I see that he puts a lot of effort into taking care of them and that is why they look so beautiful and dazzling.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Wonderful photographs dad!

Thank you very much hon.

beautiful flowers

Thank you very much.

These shots looks so beautiful

Thank you very much.

Here in our town it has been raining for almost a week already. We're kinda getting fed up of it.

Those are really lovely photos, thank you for showing us different kinds of flowers. It's my first time to see a Zinnia and it looks so beautiful. Have a great day!

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

By Fall after a long dry period the rain is wonderful. But if it does not stop then it is not as enjoyable.

Te lo digo en versos .

Hermosa rosa
hermosas flores
y girasoles, bello venado
que bella zinnia me gustó mucho
ninguna de ellas dejo de lado.

Lindas las fotos,todas,-las cinco-
sí, bendiciones por por ti r2cornell
por tu excelencia a Dios le pido.

Muchas gracias por sus hermosas palabras.

Nice shots, the rose is very beautiful.
I would love to see the products of your garden and the canning process.
I missed the photo contest but I will be attentive to the next topic.

Thank you very much. They may be doing more photo contests. I will try and keep people posted as I hear anything.

Sunflowers???

Yes this is a sunflower. Quite awesome is it not.

Fabulous photography sir

Thank you very much.

Some of your photography is capable of making phone wallpapers

Thank you very much. You are welcome to use a photo as wallpaper

Nature is the best beauty on the earth and last flower is too awesome. Thanks for sharing sir.

Thank you very much.

Hello sir, nice to meet you. I like the sunflowers that you display. it looks beautiful and in my opinion it is indeed a sunflower. if the flowers are yellow, it's called bright sunflowers. if it's a little red, it's called sunflower at dusk. Hehehe. .

I want to ask, do you know about lifestyle projects?
it is a new project supported by steemleo. the project also supports photography, cooking and other activities. I like the project. and I have also bought lifestyle and I made it strength.

In my opinion the project is very suitable for your post about flower photography. I only advise you.

Posted using Partiko Android

Thank you very much. I am happy you liked.

I think I looked at the lifestyle project, but did not explore it very much. Steemleo people can be unkind to some who use their tag wrong. Then I had my tokens delegated because I do not write much in the financial area, and because the person self voted they blocked her. I cancelled the delegation and have been selling all I have, including the miners I had (only a few left). I will look again at lifestyle project but my attitude is tainted from how the steemleo people deal with issues.

Fantastic photograph

Thank you very much.

Amazing, very nice flower and fantastic photography

Excellent shoot, Thanks for sharing @r2cornell

Thank you very much.

I love this deer picture.

Thank you very much. Last night there was a larger one below the hill behind our house. My dog was barking. By the time I got the camera and the lens changed he slipped off into the woods. Hopefully I got a photo on my trail camera which was close to him.

Do the deer move around in your home?
Without zoos in our Bangladesh we cannot see deer. Because there is no deer in the locality.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Beautiful images, in the first the deer warns the presence of the photographer and indirectly makes it part of the shot. Greetings.

You made the day so delightful and amazing thanks for lightening up the day :D

Hi @r2cornell,The result of his effort to take this photo, and even climbing a ladder, was worth it, the sunflower is unique, he had never seen one like that, nor his color, good work sir.

Blessings and happy Friday.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it. I hope to have more sunflowers in future posts. They are in their early stage of blooming.

@r2cornell, The picture of Deer and it's effect reminded me one of the old Game. Some pictures push us back in times. Stay blessed brother.

As usual mind blowing photography specially dark meroon sunflower. Never saw them in person.. Well, I will check out the photography contest. Sounds interesting...

Thank you. I have many varieties and coloring so each day I go out to my sunflower patch to see what new flower is in bloom.

Wonderful flowers of nature and the rains definitely eased your job to take care of the plants and flowers. I can see very micro details of the flowers and its colors are mesmerizing. Thank you grandpaa @r2cornell

Thank you. I am happy you enjoyed.

Good to know that you are canning. The sunflower is looking wonderful and that color is very rare.
