Sunflower by Melissa Drummond

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Grown by my kids – aged 5,4 and 2.

But I dare say it was the 2 year old who ripped them out by the roots ;)

Nikon D90
Nikkor 18-55mm lens (I can’t remember if I had macro filters on……it was a while ago!)
As is.

Born in Victoria, now living in the outback of Western Australia, I love nature, music, and photography. I’m passionate about our environment, sustainability, and documenting the impact we’ve had on the planet.

I shoot both digital and film, and have a quirky collection of toy and vintage cameras that are a lot of fun to experiment with.

    LMAO…imagine that!! great shot….LOVE the colors! thanks for the early morning laugh!!

  • thanks Michael, and cheers for the fave! Their enthusiasm (for want of a better word!) can be a bit destructive at times, that’s for sure! My oldest two are girls, so this whole 2-year-old boy business is a bit of an eye-opener :)

    The colours are superb Melissa, what a great macro :)

  • Many thanks Trish, for the kind words and fave. Macro is not normally my thing, I struggle with it a lot, especially focussing – it’s a bit easier when the flower’s huge though :)
