  1. Ah, the serenity…Beautiful!

  2. Yes, no question about it, ethereal.

  3. sue that is just so lovely! there is a purity to it I love! and, I have to ask, tho I’m sure I can’t do it anyway! HOW, do you get the background to be White? is there a filter that lightens it? Silly question, I know. Thanks 🙂

  4. By coincidence, I bought Julie some white tulips, and they are looking nice on the kitchen window ledge, as I type. A lovely soft image, Sue. I can sense the texture of those petals.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Ahh, makes me look forward even more to spring.

      Well, yes, but a few cut flowers will have to suffice for now – although we do have daffodils a Nd snowdrops far too early at present, and it’s getting colder ,..

  6. Love tulips as you already know, and this treatment is gorgeous. Great perspective too. One of your best, though I still remember the peonies.

    • Sue

      But this is a departure from the norm – they aren’t a study of decay!! Glad you like it, and I agree it is possibly one of my best floral images…. The peonies were wonderful to work with, but I don’t have a garden anymore….

  7. Definitely has a dreamy quality to it 🙂

  8. Really simply stunning Sue.. and yes agree there is a purity. So gorgeous!

  9. Ethereal definitely, lovely as can be.

  10. Sue, this photo is stunning. I like the way you used the tones of the overlapping leaves to create the outline and form of the tulip. You have become quite the Lightworker.

  11. simple things can be very beautiful and you really have a talent to photograph them.

  12. Is elegance your middle name? Or mistress of composition? This image stays in the mind as a place to go for serenity.

    • Sue

      Oh gosh, elegance most certainly not! Would have made my mother laugh…. Glad you like this, Meg, I am very pleased with it, and I agree re serenity

  13. A dreamy promise of spring and the delights to come.

Over to you...
