I love light. That is why I love photography. I look for it everywhere and when I see it I have to capture it. Today’s images are the perfect example. As we were eating dinner on the porch the other evening I noticed the light on the Dahlias. I had to capture it. The title of the post is based on the fact that in the Victorian language of flowers Dahlia’s represent, or mean, dignity. I think after seeing the images you’ll agree, that indeed, the light is demonstrating dignity. Enjoy!
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.
