Light, Shade and Colour

It was the shadow of the stamens on the petals that I really like about these shots of another beautiful flower from Swansea’s roadside verges. I like the contrast in the first image and the subtlety of the same shadow in more muted sunlight in the second.

Pembrey Pine

Flowers come in all shapes and sizes, colours and combinations – every plant has its own form. To my mind, the less flamboyant flowers of a pine are no less attractive than those with beautifully coloured petals.

A Little Splash of Pink

It may be a common wild flower, but that doesn’t make it any less pretty – another photo from the Pembrey Country park “Floral Walk” in Carmarthenshire, Wales.
