Mother Nature provides us with a plethora of colours and textures that we pass by every day – whether it is a stroll in the park, walking to work, walking the dog or even just looking out of the window… there is colour and texture all around us.
Photographers who have great creativity and imagination can take advantage of all that is offered to us through the lens of their camera.
It’s true that one flower does not make a bouquet – and we can all see the beauty in a well-structured flower arrangement, but to get the full beauty from one single flower there has to be a lot of artistic flair applied.
In this showcase we are featuring stunning photographs of single flowers, shot by talented and creative photographers, using both macro and close-up photography techniques and lenses, the single flowers are either photographed from a different angle, or with natural added elements such as raindrops or insects, or with a colourful or highly contrasting backdrop to capture out attention – even what we would generally overlook as just pesky weeds can have the beauty brought out of them by a skilled photographer!

The following image is a small collection of photographs by an outstanding macro photographer. Clicking on the image will take you to the gallery of origin.
I can’t say for sure that none of these images have been Photoshopped, I can say that some have been set up by the photographer rather than taken in their natural surroundings. To achieve the correct lighting and angle for these beautiful photographs is sometimes impossible in situ.
However, I can also say that they are all creative, artistic, imaginative and stunning photographs taken by extremely skilled photographers.
