Veiled in soft shadows
Nuances of light and dark
Create magic blooms

Spring blossom - summer fruit? Great shot! Love the way the light falls.

Love the words. Such a beautiful blooming tree. The "spikes" make delightful shadows on the white petals!

Lovely flowers, Mickie. I like how the stamens and pistils give a lacy effect, and how the colors change depending on the light. Spring is definitely there for you!

You asked how I find the subjects of my photos...Well, I look for what is different: and if I don't find something different, I try to capture what I do find differently from the usual. (I am very glad for digital photography, it has encouraged me to experiment!) My walks take me through the same woods, generally, but the landscape changes with the seasons, the light, and the weather. This is a great help to me in my quest for beautiful, different, images.

Hey Harriet said...

Such delicate and pretty flowers. I have no idea what type they are but I sure like them. You captured them so beautifully! Have a wonderful week ahead :)

Can't wait to see the blossoms on my own trees, they will bring the honey bees only for a brief time, till the farmers start aerial spraying their fields, then all will be lost...why haven't they figured that out yet??!

I can almost smell the fragrance of those brilliant blossoms, Mickie! Spring is here!

FRAGMENTS OF LIGHT

Since shadows are fragments of light,
Most gracefully they can take flight
And soar through the air
(They do this, I swear)
As though they were some sort of kite.
