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.

Dramatic sky

This image of a dramatic sky over Puget Sound was taken in Des Moines, WA (south of Seattle), right near a friend’s house. She can walk across the street and see this!

Pink gerbera daisy

These pretty gerbera daisy flowers were in a florist shop, begging me to take them home. Such sweet pinkness!

Fresh carrots

Saw these at the farmer’s market. Aren’t they gorgeous? Makes me want to just grab one and chomp on it.

Red rose in the rain

I did not go outside in the pouring rain here in Seattle today, but I had this image from last year taken in my rose garden around this date. Stay safe and dry, everyone!

Coupeville pier

Coupeville is one of the oldest towns in Washington, I am told. We were here last year at this time. Don’t you just love the starry diamonds on the water?

Ferry boat at dusk

This ferry-in-the-sunset photo is very similar to one I posted about three years ago, but I think it deserves a re-run. I had just gotten my new camera and hadn’t mastered all the settings (not that I’ve done so by now) and it needed a tad of adjustment, but hardly any. Those are the Olympic Mountains in the distance.

Nectarines

Those of us who love to photograph beautiful things in nature are blessed to have farmer’s markets in town. I can’t decide whether the nectarines with the speckles or the solid colors taste best. Guess I’ll just have to get both.

Collard leaf raindrops

I know I am not the first person to notice that raindrops can look like jewels, but really . . . don’t they?
