Hold Your Heads Up

 

It's very cold here this morning – outside at least – and I thought of these frozen beauties that spent so long in my freezer. These gerbera daisies you see here are encased in ice. As I photographed them using a macro lens, you can see the details in the lovely petals and stems and the way the bubbles in the freezing water embrace the blooms and seem to buoy them up. I took the photograph with some natural light, but as the exposure time was sufficiently long, I played with moving additional light around the flowers to highlight different areas during the exposure.

Have a wonderful week everyone!
