Macro Monday – December 15th, 2014 – White Orchids in Morning Light Revisited

One Sunday morning a little while back I went a bit overboard with my macro lens taking pics of our Orchids. The way the sunlight was shining in and the shadows created by the horizontal blinds in the window had me totally absorbed.

I’ve gone back through those pics and selected some of my favs to post here. Believe me it was hard enough to narrow it down to ten!

Have a look and let me know which ones you like best:











As alway, thanks for looking 🙂

      I appreciate the feedback. It looks like 1 and 5 are the clear leaders.
      As for the award, I thank you very much for thinking of me but I won’t be doing any awards on my blog. I guess I should put up an “award-free” button or some such to let people know, sorry about that.
      Please do pass it on to someone else though.
      Thanks again!

  9. Wow! This is a beautiful set of photos… The orchid looks almost like it is dancing, embracing with the light and shadows… Lovely photos, difficult to choose so I will say I love the whole lot!
