This will be my first time entering Gardening Gone Wild's Picture This Photography Contest. This month's theme is Late Summer Garden. I enjoy taking photos in my garden and experimenting with the camera, so, for me, it is a joy to enter. Finding the photo that would represent the theme was a challenge. I like the colors of this photo as well as the idea of looking beyond an image in the foreground.
This photo fit the requirement for a late summer garden and the suggestion of shooting tight.
Spider webs seem to be all over the garden. I try not to disturb them, but there are times I must release one corner of the silk to pass through a path.
The late summer garden is filled with fresh blooms and fading blooms. The seedheads boldly reach up to the sky and the petals fold down and crisp at the edges.
Blooms are in transition and offer different views and lights.
This fennel in bloom photo has a gossamer-like view between the stems and leaves.
I decided on entering this photo of a clematis seedhead. I liked the lone seedhead against the fading seedheads and colors in the background.
I am joining Donna at Garden Walk Garden Talk for Word for Wednesday. The word for today is illumination, an apt word for this time of year.
