Dahlia’s at Dinner

As the kids and I were eating dinner on the porch this evening I noticed the gorgeous light hitting the yellow Dahlias in the pot next to the table.  I couldn’t keep such beauty to myself, so of course, I ran to get my camera.  I hope you enjoy the Dahlias as much as I have this evening.

With so much side lighting exposure was a little tricky, but I love the accent of the slightly overexposed petals and the deeper yellow/orange in the center.

Same exposure challenge here, but different flower. It works, still beautiful.

Standing at attention…yet the petals look so soft and delicate.

And of course I cannot present you with flowers without offering one in black and white. I love the vibrancy and energy of flowers in color, but I find there is also something very timeless in black and white flowers. In my opinion, black and white flowers have a unique way of moving the inner being.
