The Beauty of Photography In The Garden

Garden photography is beautiful and mesmerizing all at once. During the early spring months, it gives us something to look forward to when planting our own gardens, or when we would like to make a trip to photograph another person's garden. I have a small container garden myself, but every summer I love to photograph a garden that is a little bit larger with more variety of plants than what I have in mine. There is just something alluring about the vibrant red color of the tomatoes and chili peppers, and the slightly purplish-red color of the dainty roses to be found in a larger garden.

Growing a variety of tomatoes is helpful if you like small ones in salads such as yellow pear tomatoes, which I prefer over cherry tomatoes.

Gazing upon the bounty of tomatoes to eat and photograph is quite awe inspiring. Such lovely displays of tomatoes would also make ideal subjects for still life paintings and drawings.

I love how the tomatoes shine and glisten in the light.

I am only able to grow a few tomato plants in my small container garden, but people with more space can grow unlimited numbers of tomatoes. Just think of all the money you can save by growing your own tomatoes, which you can freeze and can for the winter months. Tomatoes at the store are watery and have no flavor during the winter, so you could grow your own and have some delicious tomatoes on hand when everyone else has to buy the less stellar ones at the store.

Rebeccamealey,

Thanks for your comments. I like photographing a big garden, even though I will probably not have one myself any time soon :).

Deepateresa,

Yes my parents love to garden, and I enjoy having some of the extra tomatoes they cannot eat.

Yes there is

Great photography. I love to garden. I am jealous of this one!

SweetiePie (author) from Southern California, USA on April 29, 2012:

This is my parents' garden that I photographed, but I only have a small container garden. I love photography, so I tend to take a lot of pictures. I actually need to write more hubs and articles to clean the pictures off my computer's drive.

Pamela N Red from Oklahoma on April 29, 2012:

Wonderful pictures. That's a wonderful garden. I have a few small beds and containers but nothing like this. I'm not very good at taking pictures, I don't have the patience for it.

SweetiePie (author) from Southern California, USA on April 26, 2012:

Hi Paradise,

I really like tomatoes and taking pictures, so the two sort of go hand in hand for me :).

Paradise7 from Upstate New York on April 26, 2012:
