Sara's Fave Photos Blog

Check out my new book, Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory. And welcome to Sara's Fave Photos Blog at Love That Image. My goal is to take a photo that is as compelling and beautiful as in real life, with no or minimal Photoshop work. You may copy a photo but link to lovethatimage.com. Thank you for your thoughtful comments, and thanks for visiting.

Smoky moon

Recent wildfires have made our Seattle sky so smoky. The moon is almost full, and so red (even redder than this photo), high in the sky.

Double Delight spray of roses

‘Double Delight’ rose has always been one of my top fave rosebushes. I think this is the third or fourth one that I’ve owned.

Eclipse crescents

Here is the pattern of pinhole crescents projected on my house at the peak of this morning’s eclipse, courtesy of our large cedar tree. Where I live the sun was about 92% covered by the moon.

Tiny spaces between leaves and branches of a tree make a giant multi-pinhole camera for today’s eclipse

At a lovely waterside terrace of some friends last evening, you could see the sunset over Puget Sound reflected in their windows.

Back-lit hollyhocks

Aren’t these unusual hollyhocks pretty? Of course, the gardeners at the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle know what they are doing.

Fuzzy peach

Our very young peach tree gave us eight peaches! When’s the last time you saw peaches with fuzz on them? Commercial growers breed that out of them for market purposes, but the store ones sure don’t smell and taste like these.
