Photo Challenge #28 / Something Grows

“Peek-a-Boo” / Theme: Texture

A little about this photo…

I love the texture of this weathered, old gate. And of course the lilies that are peeping through add a nice pop of colour. I could have picked a dozen prompts for this, but I finally decided to go with the “Something Grows” prompt.

“Icy Yellow” / Theme: Abstract

A little about this photo…

This is a follow-up in my flowers in ice experiment, but I felt this one had a more abstract feel. The bubbles and crackles in the ice. The glowing and various shades of  yellow of the flower.

Photo Challenge #14 / Still Life

“Pink Tulips at Night” / Theme: Still Life

A little about this photo…

I’ve been meaning to do a still life shot for awhile now. The chance came with these beautiful, pink tulips. I love how they are nearing the end of their blooming and are kind of flopping all over the place. Since I shot this at night, I was working with two off-camera flashes. I don’t do a lot of flash work, so this was part of the challenge for me.

Photo Challenge #5 / Reflection

“Tea for Two” / Theme: Reflection

A little about this photo…

Place a tea cup in front of a mirror and voila! Tea for one instant becomes Tea for two! Taking photos of tea is always great because you get to drink… tea! And eat the scones. And guess what? Violets are the February flower, so I think I just might get double points for this one! 🙂

Photo Challenge #4 / Close Up

“Frozen in Ice” / Theme: Close Up

A little about this photo…

Lily-of-the-valley… frozen in ice. After having seen some wonderful photos (I forget where now) of flowers frozen in ice, I decided to try something like it. I am quite pleased with the result. I almost feel as if the flowers have been trapped in amber.
