Time: Dance of the Daffodils

An image to show the ravages of time on some cut flowers…. I love the beauty in decay, the delicate tracery of the veins in the petals, the faded colours…..

  1. Love your decaying flowers series, Sue. This is another fabulous image to add to it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Love the painterly effect, Our daffs are just popping up bright yellow. Nice post.

  3. Aw … they look kinda sad… how beautiful they must’ve been before time did that to them.

  4. so artistic and beautiful dear Sue, Thank you, love, nia

  5. Oh so sad… actually I’d love to get much closer to that centre one. The tracery in those petals is delightful. Over to you…

  6. Beautiful imagery…

  7. Yes I love them too even if they are a little sad.

  8. The middle one is exquisite. I love your ‘beauty in decay’ photos Sue, as you know… 🙂

  9. I share your sensibility which can be hard to explain. I hear “but the flowers and fallen leaves are dead—what do you see in them”? Something poetic.

  10. Marvellous image, Sue. They certainly are beautiful even in decay.

  11. Another beautiful high-key image, Sue. The petals appear to be hand drawn in sepia ink. I really like this image.

      Thanks, Allan, I wanted to enhance the look of these flowers in decay and high key brought out the delicacy of the fading petals. Glad you like

  12. “Your” lovely ones in decay…and yes, they are beautiful even now…

  13. Glad to see someone else also sees the beauty of dead flowers. Your photo highlights that beauty wonderfully.

      Oh, Janet, I have long extolled the beauty of decaying flowers! Did a whole series last year and I hope there will be more to come 😀

  14. Oh I love the decaying series! So happy to see another creative entry to your gallery Sue.

  15. I hope I end up with that beautiful transparency in my decay! Forgive my absence. I’ve been skimming posts, but no time for commentary in the presence of beloved twins.

  16. Sue, you are SO good at these – such beautiful delicate forms. There is a lot of dignity in decay. I can’t see them as sad, just another stage of life.

  17. Really nicely done Sue – I will look at the creative possibilities of dead flowers in a new way now.

  18. This is a beautiful photo, I like it a lot.

  19. This is a stunning photograph! As they are past their peak – their color and texture are beautiful!

  20. They do look as though they are pirouetting. Nice high key image

  21. Hi Sue, I love this image. Beautifully shot and conveys a sense of natural life cycles.

  22. This is a very apt comment on the current winter – still not quite half way through February and some Daffodils are already past their post.

  23. Love how the soft backlighting shows up the ‘delicate tracery of the veins’…

  24. Those translucent petals leached of all colour are beautiful!!

  25. Great shot of their last dancing days!

Over to you...
