Light and Shadow


In the evening at sunset long shadows appear.
             At this time all the plants in my garden look differently.
Their petals and leaves can be seen clearly and graphically, and their beautiful shadows lie on the ground.
When the day is dim and the sun is just noticeable through the clouds, the plants also look dull.
Light and Shadow play with plants, showing their fine petals, 
 

                 showing their stems, veins and holes on each leave.

  8. Just the other day I was just comparing photos taken of a plant in the early morning versus photos taken in the late afternoon. It was so interesting to see the effects that different light had on them - such a startling difference. Your picture of the blue anemone is gorgeous!

  9. Beautiful blooms. I really enjoy the garden in the setting sun, the plants take on a different look and everything seems more relaxed.
    Love the ligularia.

  12. Ваши анемоны просто восхитительны, Надежда! Хотела подписаться на Ваш блог как постоянный читатель, но не смогла. Около недели у меня постоянно проблемы с подпиской. Сделаю ссылку на Вас на боковой панели, так я не пропущу Ваши сообщения :о) Еще вопрос где достать такие анемоны?

    1. Спасибо за добрые слова! Анемоны я покупаю в обычных гипермаркетах, прикоторых есть садовый отдел. Это сорт "Анемона корончатая". Вы можете ее спокойно выращивать в кашпо или в вазоне, они так быстрее зацветают, тк земля быстрее прогревается. На зиму надо выкопать, просушить и хранить.

  13. Hi Nadezda
    You have highlighted an excellent concept! I often take for granted how different things look during my morning walk around the garden vs. when I go out in the evening. Your photos beautifully show how colours and even textures vary in different light conditions. Thanks for the great post!

  15. Hello Nadezda,
    Thank you for your comments on my blog. It is amazing that I can see your lovely garden and wonderful photography so far away from here. I love your pink Anemone with side lighting and so close.
    I look forward to your lovely posts and will go back through your earlier posts to see more beautiful photos.
