Blooms are busting out again here in my little corner of suburbia, and I thought I’d share them with you in a slightly different way. I took some of these pictures around 5:00 in the afternoon yesterday and some of them this morning around 9:00. I was curious to see how the light at different times of the day affected the color and look of the blooms.

Any thoughts on which you like better? I think the morning light shows a “truer” view of the color. I didn’t retouch any of these shots – all SOOC.
Hydrangea again – f4.5 with 50mm lens
Fuchsia – f3.2 with 50 mm
I mentioned in my Fireworks post, that I purchased a shutter release cable. That seemed like a good excuse to bring the extension tubes out to play, no?
Bee balm with extension tubes – kind of alienlike isn’t it? Maybe it is really a triffid, Gerry!
