So glad you couldn't sleep, Mavis (not really!). A beautiful image, not an easy flower to capture well. Wish we could smell it, too. Carol

HI Mavis

Lovely delicate image, the spots of water add that something extra, well done.

Keep well.

Fresh, clean, alive. And that really does look like night-time background.

So this is nightlighting is it Mavis? I know what you mean about the smell though, and you either love it or hate it, but it certainly makes itself known. Lovely capture with the water droplets

Thank you all for your clicks and comments . Don't usually have trouble sleeping but I am having so much trouble with my central heating . At least 8 times I've had to call the electrician out and they now believe the cable that runs under the house is the trouble . I imagined them digging up the kitchen but now they have found another route by the back door . Hopefully that will soon be fixed for all time . xxx
The cuppa AND the photography then I slept like a baby Smile xxx

Mavis this is very delicate and I like the softness around the main focal area. Yes, it was glycerine I used-first time & not the last!! Next time I will put it in the fridge the day before to see if that makes things even better. I use an eye dropper to place the 'drops' Hope you get everything fixed OK, thanks for all your comments, Sylv.

I feel fine though have another appointment . Heating now working so well as they had to dig a new cable from boiler outside round by the back door and in by the ceiling !! At least they diddn't have to dig the kitchen floor up . Then my BT Broadband went capput but my dear son has fixed it. So hopefully I will be able to show more pictures soon . It is Snowing Smile xxxxx
