Rain-soaked Peonies has become my best-selling image. It is the first of my photographs to have been purchased in every format offered: framed prints, stretched canvas prints and greeting cards. I found these beautiful flowers in London at the Middle Temple Garden of the Inns of Court in the spring of 2009. I've never seen any other like them. They were unusual both for their size and color; they were quite large and the color gradation included pink and yellow in the same bloom. Raindrops added to the unique presentation. 0 comments

This agapanthus flower was practically glowing under the mid-afternoon sun in San Francisco. Though its varying shades of purple and lavender were beautiful, the resulting photo is more dramatic in black and white because of the light. 0 comments

Interior Design by Rona Black. Yesterday it snowed again here in Salt Lake City for what I can only hope will be the last time this season. This crocus emerged close to the beginning of spring, during the last week of March. 0 comments

Reflection, 2009 This represents somewhat of a departure from my typical abstract photography. Until now I've most often kept with a nature theme, sticking to macro abstracts of flowers and plants. This is a cropped photo of one of the reflecting pools at the Salt Lake City Library. http://www.activesearchresults

Rainy Day Leaves It just so happens that this year's Fall season in Salt Lake is turning out to be one of the most colorful in recent memory. The other day, a woman who has lived here for many decades told me she'd never seen so much orange in the changing leaves. I took this macro photograph while it was raining and the color is probably more vivid that it would have been had the sun been shining. http://www.activesearchresults 1 comment

A Peek Inside, 8" _ 8" Much of the photography I do is extremely close up or macro. While shooting, some details are visible, but quite often the intricacies of line and color are not apparent. In this macro photograph of the interior of a red tulip, I was unable to see the purple tones or the dew on the yellow flower bud until the image was developed. As happens quite often with macro photography, the final result was a bit of a surprise. http://www.activesearchresults 0 comments
