Hidden depths

By mandarinkay
I got a few reduced flowers in Tesco the other day, some lillies and some gladioli. Whilst the Gladis were not at their best, there were still some suitabley pretty florettes came from the buds giving me some wonderful shots. This is one that I am really pleased with and I hope that you all like it too! Karl is doing really well and happy to be home .. .thanks to all for the well wishes! oh and this is another kitchen come studio shot .... what a palava! lol! Take care all,
Karen xxx

Thank you Myra, Mrs Webber, Helen, Keith and Fred .... my goodness that was quick .... I really appreciate it! Keith ... all I have done in PS this time is a little sharpening, ever so slightly used saturation and made the border, otherwise it is pretty much straight from the camera ... for a change! lol ... Cheers all,

I like the semi-abstract nature to this. The water drops are a nice touch here.
