In a Dark Place

Tiarella cordifolia aka Foam Flower

Sporting !/4 inch flowers on an erect 6-12 inch stem rising from the forest floor, Tiarella is often seen in clusters that appear to be foam at first glance.

A dainty little stem blooming now in my garden. I had to shoot it thru an evergreen, Background is a rock.

I love the composition of this, the way you have captured the light just to the top of this lovely little flower, then fading away the lower it goes.
Very beautiful.

It's a lovely shot, and I like the simple background/foregrounds - they really make the flower stand out. Smile Unfortunately I think there's a little too much green, but I guess that couldn't be helped.
