Peonies

Nature, Photography

Schwartz Peony Garden at Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, Maryland has a great collection of peonies. The best time to photograph these beautiful flowers is when the blooming is young (before the full bloom and becoming too “heavy headed” and bending down).  We were blessed in the last two days with cloudy and windless morning to allow me shooting these lovely flowers.

    Thank you. I did try hard in composing every image, thanks for the encouragement !

  2. My favourite Blooms. In spring they are with us for such a short time…. Nevertheless, they are appreciated so much more because of this. Beauties! 🙂

    Thank you for visiting both wisteria and peonies posts. Both flowers only last for a few days and timing is very important, at the mercy of weather. Glad you like them!
