“Pink Blush”

“Pink Blush”

“Her blush was the color of a coral reef, but smooth.” 
― Aimee Bender

I simply love the many muted colours of spring. Understated blues, yellows, purples, and oranges, all make their appearance in the garden. Yet pink, as pale as a blush’s beginning appeals to me most. There is a natural softness to this colour, especially on these blossoms which move from a bright and warm yellow, through white and then terminate in pink, like some magical paintbrush.

I’m mixing things up a bit with my floral images, testing different backgrounds. My preference is still the black background, which makes even the most demure blossoms pop out of the background. And yet, I have been encourage by my family to try lighter colours as well.

I will post this same image tomorrow with a light background and the exact same camera settings and lighting. I look forward to your feedback.
