Hearts in the shade

Tucked away in the shade in a corner of the back yard, under the trees, are some bleeding heart plants. I love how they catch brief touches of the sun when it’s shining and the way the light is filtered through the mantle of leaves overhead, the way it was today. It makes me acutely aware of how relatively quickly the sun is moving, even though it’s not obvious, as I barely have time to set up my tripod before the light has moved off the petals, and the opportunity has evaporated.

  1. What beautiful photographs Katrina, just magic is the heart shaped flower and your composition is wonderful. I love in another photo how they look like earrings as well. Nature can be resplendent 🙂
