Earlier today I posted a few photos of the supermoon of July 2013. While responding to a comment by Lisa at Northwest Frame of Wind, I mentioned a recent photo of the almost full moon I took in June 2013. She asked me to share it in a future post, so when I saw today’s photo challenge theme was masterpiece, I figured this would be a great opportunity. This is the supermoon of June 2013, a couple of days before it was full. Look how beautiful the moon is, with its moon craters. A masterpiece in our skies.
Nature is a wonderful display of masterpieces, if you play close attention to it. Here are just a few I really enjoyed capturing on camera, including the pistils of this beautiful purple and yellow lily. It’s amazing how many details nature includes in each masterpiece it creates.
The San Diego Botanic Garden has beautiful topiary I consider work of art. Here’s a dancing couple. You can view more photos of these topiary masterpieces here.
This last photo is not nature related but it is a unique masterpiece. I was so mesmerized with this multicolor firework I photographed this past July 4, something I’ve never seen before. I love how the different colors go so well together against the black background of the sky. You can see more photos of fireworks here.
