Blurry Tunnel of Fuchsia - Pretty in Pink

And as it's #unsharpSaturday, here is a fantasy fun blur image, in a tunnel whirl of pink! Have a wonderful weekend.

My full post with images of the fuchsia before they whirled into the maelstrom, can be seen at the link below.

Martlesham Sunset Multiplied

The sunsets in Suffolk are legendary. Beloved of the painter William Turner, I understand that they are produced by the particular quality of the misty droplets in the air from the North Sea which refracts the light in a certain way. We had some truly spectacular sunsets while we stayed in Suffolk and this one was taken through a window where the foreground was filled with the rooftops of the neighbouring houses and the trees. Once again, a multiple exposure showed the scene off to best advantage. My friend who lives in this house sees these kind of sunsets every day (when there is actual sun...) from her kitchen window! Just imagine.

White Rose's Glowing Heart of Summer

With the chilly temperatures of autumn creeping into our bones in Nova Scotia, I felt like seeing a flashback to the drowsy heat of summer. This white rose in multiple exposure shows the warm glow inside the cool white petals. This beautiful flower was blooming in the middle of Halifax in the public gardens which are like a quiet oasis of peace with the bustling of the city surrounding it. As the gardens in the city, the heart of a flower is an oasis of visual sweetness for the visitor to sit and contemplate, just as it is literally for nectar seeking insects. I hope this warm-hearted rose has brought back a memory of summer days and taken some of the chill you might be feeling from the cold damp days of autumn.

Garden Jester

In another burst of fiery colour, the day lily here as shown in a multiple exposure looks as delightful as the hat worn by a jester of old.

I was visiting the garden of a friend during a BBQ get-together and while others were chatting I wandered around among their flowers with my camera. They had some of the most exquisite blooms as well as a profusion of wonderful vegetables (believe me, they have more than their fair share of green fingers and green thumbs between them) and this one cried out to be photographed multiple times. So I couldn’t resist. As the cooler autumn advances too quickly, I hope this might cheer us all with the warm memories of summer evenings with friends.

A Dream of Country Sunsets

A path that runs along the side of a field that's near our house has always given the best view of sunsets within a 5 minute walk. As we have so many trees around us and the ground rises in the direction of the setting sun, the most glorious bursts of colour in the evenings can go completely unnoticed if we don't make a special effort to get to this clearing. Yesterday night I saw the reflections in the clouds in the east and practically ran out with Joni, camera (and blue ball) in hand, hoping I was not too late. The display was almost over when I got there, but the landscape has changed since my last sunset visit there. For the first time in 19 years the farmer has planted corn in that field that has lain fallow for so long. The ripening crop stands about 3 feet taller than my head, with the path on a much lower level. The foliage makes an interesting silhouette in the foreground, but the (in camera) multiple exposure gives such a dreamy feel that I decided to share this. Dreams of country sunsets.

Blue Hydrangea Posy

Blue hydrangeas have twice been a special gift from friends. This year Linda, who was going away during the time they would be blooming in her garden, asked me to pick them so they wouldn't be wasted. It was a double gift as I hadn't been able to pick any and so my Steven went and got them for me and presented them as a beautiful blue bunch.

These striking flowers seem to have been dyed this wonderful shade, though I know they grow like this completely naturally, their colour coming from minerals in the soil. It seems, too, that they are not meant to be kept for longer than their natural lives as, unlike other hydrangeas, they don't seem to dry well, just withering and becoming pale and sad looking.

I wanted to keep these blooms a little longer so I took multiple exposures of several of them and combined them in a posy for us all to enjoy. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Day Lily Delight

I always think of day lilies as one of the quintessential Canadian / North American summer flowers. I don't remember seeing them anywhere in Europe, though no doubt they exist there. So for your weekend enjoyment I present a multiple exposure of this joyful one which is growing in my garden. This seems to be one of the most common ones, but even so the bright colour always cheers me up no matter what else is going on.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves Me

The humble daisy flower has an extraordinary ability. Children and adults the world over have plucked its petals one by one, looking for the answer to the age-old question 'He loves me, he loves me not'. This flower, it appears, can reliably answer and, in so doing, define the future for the enquirer. Who would have credited such knowledge to such a modest, simple flower?

For Sheer Joy

This image of a single fuchsia represents for me the distilled joy and the beauty of flowers, in particular the delicacy and transience of each bloom of the fuchsia in its short life. It reminds me of a bird taking off and of a ballerina with arms raised gracefully, about to leap into the air in the arms of her partner. It seems to radiate the sheer joy of living and life.

I hope you enjoy it and it helps to make your weekend joyful and bright! It is another in my series of multiple exposure floral images.

Take the Next Exit (If You Can Find It)
One of those images where you get to decide what you want it to be!

Driving home from a city at night* is a great way to get some very interesting photographs, if you are prepared to experiment and play. This was actually taken at dusk and the colours are the result of the pink glow on the skyline, the car lights and the various signs as they were lit by the traffic.

*I was a passenger, I should add before I am flooded with horrified comments about how unsafe this practice would be if I were at the wheel.
