Spots and crinkles

By CaroleS
The light was reflected again giving a rich glow and deep shadows to my Nasturtiums. Although it looks as though I have put a vignette, the shadows are as they were and only a minor crop. It was the unusual light giving that strong effect.

Huge thanks for lovely recent comments and to Moira, Brian, Ann, Steve and Neil for their User Awards on Pink Prose.

The colour and detail is amazing, Carole, I do like these yellow nasturtiums so much more than the orange variety. Carol

Lovely delicate colour and detail, Carole, and I do like the perspective along the flowers (if that makes sense Smile)
