Framed By Nature by: F.M. Kearney
For some reason, everything seems to look better framed. As a outdoor nature photographer, I often seek out natural frames for my subjects. As you might imagine, this isn’t always easy. Nature rarely presents itself in neat, ready-made packages.
A few years ago, I was in the New York Botanical Garden shooting crabapple trees. During the months of April and May, the Donald J. Bruckmann Crabapple Collection erupts in a vivid explosion of red, pink and white blossoms. After photographing the trees themselves, I moved in for close-ups of individual blooms. Some gracefully drooped toward the ground and others proudly reached for the sky – offering a wealth of creative compositions. It was then when I finally spotted one of those rare “ready-made packages.” Perfectly framed in the middle of three interconnecting branches was a single blossom. It provided the subject for a photo I appropriately titled, “Framed By Nature.”
