Maryland Blogger: Early Morning Photowalking in Kentlands, Gaithersburg, Maryland

Early Morning Photowalking in Kentlands, Gaithersburg, Maryland

Early Morning Photowalking in Kentlands, Gaithersburg, Maryland


I like to photowalk through our home community, Kentlands, in Gaithersburg, MD.  I find that the best time for daily walks is early in the morning.  And, I love the morning light for flower photography.

Get out early, with your camera in hand, to enjoy the colors of the season. It is easy to set aside the problems of the day when we focus our attention and our camera on a beautiful flower.  Get up close and really enjoy the beauty of nature.  

These photographs were taken in our Kentlands home garden
