5 O'clock Shadows...

I'm starting to adjust to this time change thing if but for only one reason...the light after 5 PM is wonderful!  After Sunday dinner I stalked my neighbors yard for about an hour.  They're traveling and it's exciting to walk around in an area that you really have no right to be in.  They only have daffodils but, at this point, I only have weeds so I thought I was justified.  That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Daffodils...some caught at, hopefully, unique angles in interesting light and a weed of some sort thrown in for good measure...

  2. That is a challenging time of day for sure. Especially for trespassing shots! ;) The first one is my favorite, almost like the daffodil is too shy to be photographed so it turned its back on you.

  3. Dafs are so bright it's like they are defying the winter to come back once they have flowered - of course Dafs for you means autumn for me!

  6. Love the light and perspective on these shots... The first one looks like a pinwheel and the one from above shows how delicate they really are! Nice images!

  7. Great close-ups - I love the colors in the last one (opposite of what you think of when you think "flower". Have you ever tried using a spray bottle to mist flowers so you get water beads on the petals?

    1. Yes, I have used a spray bottle but completely forgot about it here! I will have to revisit as soon as I can. Big thanks for the reminder!

  8. Delightful photos. The use of shadow is just as important as the use of light for many photos.

  10. Helene, these are beautiful! I'm loving the extra light at night, and while I miss the light in the morning, the days are getting longer!
