Light and colour play

Vibrant petals

with astonishing and contrasting dark centres

transparency against the light

with a sprinkling of black pollen

two anemones against the backlight

and a curly ribbon just for fun!

  2. Oh SNAP! I also have some beautiful anemones in my living room at the moment! Isn't nature wonderful?

    Love your brilliant photography and peaceful post.

  3. Wow! I just love any flower but the black pollen against the pink is wonderful!

  4. I so enjoyed this post..simple beauty with a little curly, happy ribbon at the end! Beauty does not need to be showy or flamboyant; just a simple little flower seen with love.

  5. Such beautiful color and form in these blooms, Sandra! And love the color harmony in your crochet piece, too! Your post reminds me of it actually on its way? I sure hope so :)

  6. You really nailed the back light...I am having trouble with just the right light....These shots are just beautiful...

  7. Anemones are so dainty and graceful. The vivid color mimics your crochet heart. I like your use of light to add drama.

  8. Such a beautiful flower! Love that first shot for the composition and colors, and your crochet work is lovely as always!

  10. I love how vivid the colors are. :)
    Hello, spring!

  11. Your color play is wonderful -- so bright and cheery! I love your last shot with the close up of the curly ribbon. (I commented on this several days ago, but my comment seems to have disappeared!)

    1. Thank you for perserving with your comment, Gina! I've noticed that if the commenting doesn't work the first time around, it usually does when tried on another day. It's just a little annoying when it happens, isn't it?

  12. That vibrant fuchsia is amazing and just what I needed to see today! I love the patterns and details in the center of that Anemone...nature can be so perfect! And I love your little crochet heart too!

  13. That heart is absolutely lovely in those colours. Mother Nature does have a wonderful palette of shades.
