Underwater Dahlia.

By myrab
These are the same Dahlias I used in yesterdays image.

I put them in a plain glass vase in water and left them outside in the sun for a few days until the water had gone murky, then I started to photograph them, I quite liked the result, what do you think ?

Definite thinking outside the box Grin (or inside the vase ... whatever!)
Just goes to show how turning the 'normal' conditions for photographing flowers on its head can produce some wonderfully different results.
