This photograph was taken either with in camera multiple exposure, or a long exposure, but I can’t remember which, as it was taken a few years ago. I remember loving the tones and lines in it, giving the feeling of coming down from a flight, into a glowing sunset at the bottom of the image. I was in a Google+ mentorship that was teaching intentional blur and abstract techniques and this was one of the results. Have a lovely Monday, friends.
I had to run to the nearby field to get this photo as the sun was fading fast. The ripening crop in this field 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 reshare this.
Have a lovely Tuesday, all.
Today’s Flower a Day is a departure from the usual in that it is a multiple exposure, not taken with the Helios lens. It was taken a few years ago for a different project and has been changed a bit to better fit this current one. We have all done that, I think – changed to better fit the present situation. It’s different, yes, but is this any less lovely than it was originally? No. We, too, are different, but still the same beauty is there in each of us. Let’s remember that. Adapting is what we have learned to do. And adapting is no doubt what we will continue to do. Look at this and keep smiling if you can today. Even under that mask. Or into the mirror. See? It’s still there. Put on some good music and do a little dance like this flower seems to be doing. I’m about to do the same. Until tomorrow, friends. Hugs all around!

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.
