BSM: Inner Light

Another Monday, another Best Shot. I am really enjoying the first glimpses of spring that I'm getting all around me these days. I am blessed to have a job that allows me to spend time outside and/or around fresh cut flowers inside. Fresh flowers make me happy - they give hope somehow, in a way I can't fully explain. These tulips made me especially happy, because when I looked, they seemed lit from within - fiery hearts wrapped in fragility.



For more beautiful shots, head over to Tracey's place!

How gorgeous! I love the lighting - the flowers almost look like they are glowing....did you use sunlight for the shots?

maggie - no, these were inside, under overhead kitchen lighting. there might have been a little sunlight creeping in the windows, but probably negligible in these shots. :)

Great shots! Tulips are so much fun! :D

One of my favorite projects with a camera and some flowers: put a bouquet on a ray of sunlight in the afternoon in an otherwise dark room (or, if you're up early, morning, I suppose) and just play with that for photo lighting. :)
Lara,
"fiery hearts wrapped in fragility."

...great line.
