Morgan has a Clematis vine growing on both sides of her garden wall.  I shot this flower from an angle through an opening and into the light. The blurred background created this strange orangish color, which I have not modified through post-processing. Makes for an interesting backdrop to the blossom.

    Your shots continue to amaze me! And I’m always excited to see the ones from my garden.

  5. One thing I really enjoy about your images is that they look one way when they open in my email. Then, when I go to your blog to view the image, it looks different. It’s like getting a bonus every time!

    • How interesting to know this! Thank you for mentioning it. I am curious to see if I observe the same thing. I’m imagining the images might be smaller in email format, and perhaps also bordered by things that may distract from the image? I’ll check it out! 🙂

      • I think it’s simply the difference in scale. But the same thing doesn’t happen with other images I receive in my email.

  6. I think George Harrison would’ve liked this. Something about the sun coming… This expresses more with a whisper than can be expressed with a shout.

  7. Love the background, so complementary to the soft yellow of the stamens.

    • Thank you, Steve. I thought the background was interesting, too.
