Loving the Light
Every morning I start the day with a walk in the garden. The pandemic hasn't changed that - on the contrary, the garden has become my refuge even more than in "normal" times. I particularly like the mornings because of the light - I simply love how only bits and parts are illuminated while everything around it remains in the shadows.
It's also the quality of the light - it's warm and soft, spreading a beautiful glow. How can I as a photographer not see that? And how can I not try to capture it in an image?
The peony had an additional gift - morning dew. Can you see the tiny droplets?
Even the pots become something whimsical.
A small part of the hollyhocks beside the path is illuminated - these plants will grow pretty tall and are a very few of non-drought tolerant plants in my garden. My guilty pleasure - I love hollyhocks, they always remind me of England.
I'm loving the light in the pomegranate tree - this is the tree I planted a few weeks ago and it already gives me so much joy.
What is your morning routine that sets you up for the day?
