Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “one shot, two ways”. You can click on the photos below for a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.
When photographing a subject in nature, sometimes it’s hard to determine which angle or side looks best. So I often shoot it from a variety of angles and decide later on. I’m not always sure which photo I prefer in the end.
Here’s a beautiful orange rose shot from above.
I love seeing the color patterns on the petals but the side shot looks very nice too.
Even when I shoot from the side, I’m not always sure which side will look best, like with this lovely pink and yellow rose, with more yellow than rose on this first shot.
Finally this ornamental plum tree looks pretty from this angle, with its dark red leaves.
But when I photographed the plum tree from the other side, with the sun shining from the other side, the red leaves really ignited.
Lovely as always. Anymore snake encounters? 😉
Thank you! Are you trying to jinx it? No, no more snakes and I really hope this is the last one ever!
I told my boys about your snake rescue. You are now officially cooler than me in their eyes. Then again, everyone is cooler than me in their eyes…
Haha, I’ll be glad to put a snake in your backyard so you can be a hero, if you’d like.
Um, think I’ll pass…
Beautiful colors, Milka. I like to take lots of shots from different angles and often it’s difficult to choose which I like best.

Each angle shows a beautiful side of the rose and the tree. It’s amazing how a change of direction creates a fresh perspective. Like life too, right? Have a great weekend my friend.
The roses are gorgeous, Milka 🙂
Wow! Those leaves really popped in that last one. I have a tree like that, but haven’t ever got any good photos of it. That gave me hope. And those roses are incredible!
Trying photographing that tree with the sunlight behind it, it really has a fire burst effect. I have more photos of roses from that day I need to get off my SD card when I have a little time. Ha!
