“Shine”

“Shine”

“To shine your brightest light is to be who you truly are.”
― Roy T. Bennett

Shine, it’s what they do, is it not? On another gray winter day, I enjoy being able to create these images and hopefully, brighten others’ days as well. Creating these studio images of flowers has become almost second nature to me. They are so enjoyable to make and then look at, long after the flowers have wilted and withered away, and I wonder why I had not done this before.

Then the answer comes. It was not till I got involved in a Cee Neuner photo challenge back in the summer that got me focused on “Isolation” that I had even considered doing this kind of work. Oh yes, I made a lot of mistakes along the way, but once I had figured it out, it be came easy to create these images both in the studio and in the outdoors. So, I hope you enjoy this bit of “Shine” in your day. A special thanks to Cee and my fellow photographers for the inspiration to try something new.

Originally posted in April, but remains one of the most glorious scenes I have participated in this year. I like it so much, I made it my cover photo for spring, but brightened up a bit.
