“Hidden by diaphanous clouds of mist and fog floating gracefully over vales of heather and flowing runnels, she began to dance.”
― Lawren Leo
It would appear that I got carried away with the spay bottle.
Between making images of the lily, I did spend some time with the creamy-white roses that are also part of the bouquet. This particular blossom has been a bit slower to open than its counterparts and just appeals to me a bit more.
It was going to be my Valentine’s Day image, but with so many other flowers to share, this one was relegated to my second choice, and so, is being shared today.

Love your flowers. As subjects, do they become beings that you feel personified in the process of photographing them? As an amateur with a macro lens, each species of wildflower seems to evoke its own personality, changing as it matures. Quite easy to get lost from the outside din of news to capture the feeling that is art.
Thanks John. Each of the flowers is unique and I’ve found that isolating then against the black backdrop allows the unique characteristics to stand out. I’ve also built a portable studio to capture wildflowers without picking them. https://edlehming.wordpress.com/2016/10/02/sow-thistle/
Great shot! 🙂 Many flowers do seem to be dancing.
