“Annabelle Hydrangea”

Annabelle Hydrangea

“One passionate heart can brighten the world. From person to person the chain reaction burns through us — setting heart to heart ablaze, and lighting the way for us all!”
― Bryant McGill

Here I am at photo four of this expanding project “Ordinary Flower in a Different Light”. Today’s subject is an Annabelle Hydrangea from our front garden.

This incredible flowering shrub is quite the sight when fully in bloom. Some of the blossoms become so large that the stem can’t bear the weight and they fold over. Those blossoms are often cut off and brought inside for us to enjoy as a centrepiece floral arrangement.

The hydrangea was a bit more of a challenge to photograph as the bright white flowers dominate the image and make it more of a challenge to get all the elements balanced. I’m still learning and adjusting camera settings as I go, but this is the best of the lot.
