Royal Poinciana - A Summer Spectacular http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2017/7/royal-poinciana---a-summer-beauty Summertime in Florida means 90 degree temperatures, oppressive humidity and daily bone-rattling thunderstorms.  But we can accept it all because this time of year also means that the spectacular Royal Poinciana trees will be in bloom.  And what a blazingly beautiful summer gift it is.

 

 

One of the most wonderful things about these trees is the way they insist upon being noticed -- you can spot their brilliant color from far away and it's hard to resist those come-hither calls.  I've been drawn down many a by-way in Florida to photograph the incomparable beauty of our Royal Poincianas.

Secret Garden Treasures http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2016/6/secret-gardens Visiting a garden is much like visiting an art gallery. Visiting a Secret Garden is like coming upon a treasure trove --enter and prepare to be dazzled.

                                       

My video, Secret Garden Treasures, is a close-up look at botanical and landscape gems in eight unique gardens on Florida's Treasure Coast.  Each garden presents surprises to relish: beds of specimen begonias, collections of jewel-like orchids, ceramic creations reflecting the flowers and foliage in which they are set, garden "rooms" to stop in for awhile amid bromeliads, palms and the occasional inanimate creature.                   

                                                                           

                                     

                                      

Whether they are expansive gardens along a river, small peaceful places in which to rest and reflect, tropical wonderlands filled with dozens of palms and bamboos, each one invites you to take a close look and be charmed by its treasures.

                                                     

                                        

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This stunning high definition video takes you into unique gardens where landscapes capture the boundless beauty of nature. You'll want to watch it again and again!

 

"A work of art that captures nature and elevates each plant to a small majesty.  There is a kind of magic in the way one image seamlessly morphs into another.  I'll watch it again and again, each time seeing plants as I never did before."  Sharon Brossman, Master Gardener & Proud Keeper of a Former -- and always changing -- 'Secret Garden'

Anticipation http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2015/12/anticipation There is a special feeling of excitement to looking forward, to thinking about the future, to dreaming about possibilities.   As always the natural world serves up such perfect symbols of things to come.   This luscious hibiscus bud, nearly ready to burst into bloom, is just such a symbol that stirs the imagination.

                                         

My photograph - "Anticipation" - has been selected by Renee Phillips, Director of Manhattan Arts International, for inclusion in its current exhibition: "New Beginnings."    The exhibit includes works of 47 artists from around the world.

Gardenography http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2015/6/gardenography Every ​garden -- large and small -- has a story to tell.  It may have grassy expanses...

 

 

  ... brilliantly colored flowers, fruit trees -- name it and it will show up in a garden. 

As a "Gardenographer" I tell the story of a garden's life in its details: an orchid plant set high on a tree branch and thriving ... 

 

 

   or a piece of sculpture surrounded by foliage that has become part of the art.

 

 

​So what exactly is Gardenography?  It is a photographic biography that captures the unique elements of a garden's life story and preserves them long after the leaves and flowers have faded.

 

 

Use this link to my "Gardenography" page on Houzz to see more.  Contact me if you would like to learn more about having your garden photographed.  I would be delighted to talk with you!

The Woodcarvers http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2015/2/the-woodcarvers The Woodcarvers  of the Treasure Coast put on a great show in Port St. Lucie Florida last weekend.  Their work is remarkable both for its beauty and its intricacy.

 

 

 

 

As I made my way around the exhibit and watched them working, teaching others their special techniques, explaining the symbols carved into different pieces, something else was evident: these artists truly relish the process of making magic out of wood, and their joy in sharing it is clearly on display.

Light Of Day http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2015/1/light-of-day "Light Of Day"  is one of my personal favorite images and has a bit of a story. At the end of the day, as I was heading out the gate after a garden tour in Stuart Florida, I spotted this lovely Iris catching the last glimmer of sunshine.  The wind was up, the tripod was not, but I had to give it a go.  One shot was all I could manage before wind set every frond and bloom in motion and the light was gone from the flower.  How glad I was that I stopped to take one last photograph.

A Closer Look http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2014/9/a-closer-look The pot of Blue Clerodendron on the patio has been producing lovely blooms all through this hottest and wettest Florida summer.  But this week it produced something entirely different: mushrooms!  One morning there were none, and the next there appeared a little army of them.  It was time to take a closer look.

 

 

Back in the studio reviewing the images I marveled, as I always do, at how nature’s extraordinary art is revealed when you peer in for a really close look.

Morning on the Indian River Lagoon http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2014/9/morning-on-the-indian-river-lagoon There was the fisherman seining for bait.  There I was hoping to capture an image of morning on the lagoon.  But there were the sky, the clouds, the stillness of the scene. All one could do was to stop for awhile and watch in awe.

A Walk in the Park http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2014/8/a-walk-in-the-park On any day a walk at Indian River Side Park in Jensen Beach, Florida, is a pleasure. Depending upon the season you may see walls of Sea Grape on the paths along the  lagoon,  Royal Poinciana in bloom, Ospreys on the hunt, and always Pelicans.  On this particular day a beautiful Anhinga seemed to be enjoying the scenery and I stopped to enjoy it with her.

Grand Opening http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2014/7/grand-opening The blooming cycle of Night-Blooming Cereus is one of those feats of nature that has me scratching my head in wonder: how does this leggy, ungainly-looking plant produce perfect little buds that develop from a half inch to large, complex and extraordinarily beautiful blooms in just a little more than one week?  And that’s not all there is to this story.  The Cereus flowers bloom once each year opening at night for one spectacular show, then close and are gone by sunrise.

This is how it began:

                                                                July 16, 2014

Hooray For The Re-Start Button! http://www.robertalondonphotography.com/blog/2014/7/hitting-the-re-start-button  

My Night-Blooming Cereus plant has been a source of amazement as it produced one bloom its first summer and two its second. It has been looking pale and rather sad since we moved it to our new house. But it has obviously forgiven us and hit the re-start button: this week four juicy buds appeared at the edges of its leaves and they are growing at an unbelievable rate.  Stay tuned for opening night!
