Sparkly things

Sunday Stills Monthly Colour Challenge: Is #Quartz a Girls Best Friend

I looked and couldn’t find anything close to quartz or even crystal so these sparkly things will have to do Terri.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Bokeh

A Crimson Rosella in the garden this morning. The blues and greens work well with the subject don’t you think?

Using the subject as well as bokeh

Not quite right, A bit too much blur

Bokeh even works well in black & white

or in colour for contrast

Just being arty-farty with bokeh. Using the blur effect with water drops. First in black and white…..

……then in colour

The life of a Hibiscus

A green bud and one ready to unfurl with another partly opened flower in the background

A green bud poking it’s nose out and a new flower waiting to open fully

Opening wide to receive the sunshine and catch the water drops

Water drops on a Crocus flower bud, on a Red Hibiscus petal, on a Nodding Violet flower and just hanging around on a strand of spider web.
