winter petals


It’s been a gentle January, a few heavy rainstorms, a week of fog, and now sunshine to tempt me into the so green garden to check out new growth of green tips with white buds – those harbingers, the snowdrops. Yet I and the camera are drawn to the dry heads of hydrangea flowers.


I cut one head to bring indoors for some play with both camera and scanner. I wished to capture the light shining through from behind the petals.


I held up the flower in a window with sunshine streaming in. I love those fine lines creating intricate patterns!


Next time I will show the images that came forth from the scanner.
