Shadow Shots/Monochrome Weekly: Fallen

Fallen 3

This was a gorgeous Stargazer lily that fell off the stem all in one piece, like a skirt that popped open at the seam. I found that fascinating. (I am easily amused.)

Beautiful shot!

Stargazers are so very lovely. This one is still a diva even in death ..

Ralph said...

This dramatic leaf is big and impressive. The shadows, however, are smallish and slight. The combination of big and small sre just right in the fine monochrome. A nice capture and edit!

Superb! And, yes, still a beautiful diva as Daryl wrote, even in death.
Fantastic shot!

Enjoy!
