Details – a photo challenge

Here is a flower, caught in a block of melting ice.

It was originally yellow , its colour faded as there was nowhere to transport any nutrients to.  To some, this may be a sad scene but to others they say – Look again.

The detail of the Flower – captured, in a moment of time

The cold, frosty ice – holding the flower in that moment, whilst the air bubbles around it seem to bring it back to life, as it enhances every of the flowers petals, and every one of its individual ridges.  Its true – the ice will melt – indeed, look closely it is melting.  But whilst it maintains most of its solidity it shows the flowers contures, and lines – in fact, the very character of the flower.

Another flower, in a block of ice

This flower seems to have had better luck than the first – in that it has maintained its colour.  The oxygen bubbles once more seem to have danced around the flowerhead and each of the flowers petals have been highlighted in the ice.

The details highlighted the flowers formation

Backlit flowers, on a background of fabrics

These flowers were brought to life, not by ice – but by the power of light.

Individual tulips were set out on a fabric base and lit from behind using a torch for the light source.  I liked the way each of the flowers own individual details were brought to life by the light coming through the shimmery fabric.

Queen Mother Rose, taken outside in BASICs Enchanted Garden

One of my favourite outdoor pics – I liked the individual petal formation and the lovely colours of this rose.
