Dresden Bluebells

By Irishkate  
Back to a bluebell image inspired by Myra(myrab) who had experimented
with submerging flowers and photographing them with their faded colour.
I liked this before any fading took place. Reminded me of Dresden china.
Many thanks for V&C and special thanks to Graham, Joline, Joan, Jenn, MileJanjic, Netta, Coleen and Ray for User awards for Gazania.
My husband was a little better yesterday so hopefully that will continue.
Thank you all for your support.

you do get a lot of flowers and then you give your all to photograph them in the best way.. this is beautiful, Kate..
I wish your husband a speedy recovery..
The bluebells certainly get around and this one feels better for it. A nice original. Well done Kate.

This is the best photograph I have seen in such a long time Kate, it really is stunning. Yes it is like Dresden china. or Delft.

Hope your man continues to feel well.
