Photography: 50 Gorgeous Close-ups of Colorful Flowers

“Art is like a border of flowers along the course of civilization. ” – this quote belonging to Lincoln Steffens is one of the great truths regarding flowers and art. Perhaps this is also one of the reasons why so many photographers consider that shots of flowers make beautiful art. And it is a proven fact. Every petal, every color, every shape and shade it casts, a flower is candy to the eye. Flowers make great photographic subjects when immortalized on a huge field, alone in the mountains, a bouquet in a vase or a close up photo, a macro. So many combinations and possibilities, that we really felt the urge of making a showcase of 50 such wonders of nature, with the intention of inspiring and bringing a ray of light in the viewer’s eye.
