The sunlight has entered this yellow tulip and set the entire flower aglow. Gentle light and shadows give the flower a true, three-dimensional appearance.

It’s all about capturing a moment in time. About discovering scenes that, when shared, generate interest and appeal.
I am absorbed in the passion for photography and derive great pleasure in being a part of this superb artistic community.

John Butler is a resident of Northern California. A builder, by trade – but spiritually, a naturalist and photographer.
