My last post showed the warm cast of morning light on my Snowball shrub. In contrast, these images reveal nature’s cool blue cast of early evening light.
The naturalist in me prohibits my manipulating colors captured through the lens in order to present flowers in their most correct coloring. I want to remember the scene as I experienced it. Cool tones kindle my remembrance of the cool tranquility of the gentle 70-degree evening breeze. Our bordering forest provides our garden with a micro habitat eight degrees cooler than surrounding areas.
