Weekly photo challenge: vivid

Vivid flowers

The weekly photo challenge often surprises me as I find myself sharing a picture I wouldn’t have expected to. I usually just say no to bright flowers in a brightly lit garden: it’s not the kind of picture that usually works out well. 

Something must have tempted me to try to capture this scene. The flowers do have a certain grace. I’d normally see the faded petals in the foreground as a problem, but their deeper colour seems to provide a nice contrast to the fresh, vivid flowers and leaves. I’m sure there will be lots of great posts on this subject… I’m heading over there now to explore!
