Looking Up Through The Trees

Gardening Gone Wild is holding an August Photo
Contest with the subject of "Down on Your Knees".
The contest was named and will be judged by David
who is one of the best in Photography. It involves
as the subject suggests that the photographer take the
pictures from the knee down. The idea is to take pictures
with a different angle or perspective that makes the viewer
gets a fresh and unexpected look at textures and angles.

The contests ends Saturday August 22, so do not be late.

My entry is of this pink lily where I literally had to get down
and shoot up at the drooping lily. When I did it picked up
the back drop of the trees above it and the sunlight reflecting
on the back of the lily making it seem transparent.
It was a fun project and there have been some amazing
pictures entered.

Happy Gardening Everyone!

What a pretty picture, the greens in the background really did bring out the color of the lily. It is fun trying different angles with picture taking.

The light coming from the back of the flower makes the petals almost translucent. Very pretty indeed.
