in the right light~

"In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary." Aaron Rose in the light~ It is the right time for me to be infatuated with the lush beauty of ranulculus. open~ tissue like petals that unfurl... from tightly budded whorls... when the light is just right... so when this last lesson was to reflect on light abstraction~ and abstraction... my choice would be easy. Easy,because I find these extraordinary blooms so intensely romantic... a few reflections~ and reflective of Spring. and this photography challenge has a been an extraordinary opportunity for me to step out of the box... I have learned that even with a very busy schedule one can see things in the right light, Atlantic blue~ and find the right time to explore different venues... and realize that you are only a landscape photographer at the seaside... because everything there is in the right light. at the right time, and to me,everything there is extraordinary. in the right light~ So thank you to Carolyn and Camilla for the offer of a chance to try something new.. here is a bouquet of ranunculus... curvy stems and feather-like leaves for you... and for you ALL.

rannunculas seen through your eyes - exquisite! I wish that I could send you a basket of freesia - knowing that you could make magic of them as well! This was such a lovely entry! Thank you - and enjoy your seaside landscape. (lucky girl)
Yvonne said…
I love the quote & I love your words - you're so poetic! I was thinking how to describe your study of ranulculus when you gave it away in words I could have never found... Lush, romantic beauty captured so well - on virtual film and in phrases!
And your seascape... no words! Lovely to have met you Theresa!
kim said…
I feel foolish admitting that I knew nothing of these gorgeous blooms prior to looking at your photos. I wonder if they thrive in Connecticut... I must find out. Delightful and soothing photos. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

That first photos is my favorite! It's like a black and white photo, but it's not. Really wonderful. Would you ever consider making a print? I'd buy it!

rannunculus... the flower is beautiful and the word itself it so nice; your photos & words, layers of images, just like the delicate petals, all layered up make such a pretty post. thank you for bringing flowers today!

Seeing the light ~ or the importance of light ~ a seminal moment ;)

Lovely photography and you could (if only you would) be giving lessons on this subject - LOL
Neuroknitter said…
What a beautiful series of images!! The reflection in the vase is outstanding as is the background lighting, and the play of shadows and light in the last image is lovely. But the picture of the sea...I feel the breeze against my face just looking at it!! Thank you! :)
Camilla~ Bloom said…
So much lovely...crisp yet sheer.
Great feeling of freshness, the soft colors the water. Extraordinary light. I am in love with the reflection in the vase...very clever.
Merci T for participating.
You know I enjoy your work immensely.

Susan {Florali} said…
I too have noticed that ranunculus seem to call out to be photographed..."come closer". So glad you were listening. White flowers like waves on the sea...so beautiful.

Renee said…
Lovely! Definitely the right light. :)
magpie said…
the flowers in the vase -
exquisite.
Carolyn Parker said…
In the 1700's before roses were so common, the ranuncula was the most popular flower. I've used them many times this spring in bouquets-- you have captured them so beautifully. Nothing like picking something gorgeous to shoot. But then you always make the most of your images. It's been a pleasure to have you in the workshop T.
Sarah said…
Thank you for these wonderful pictures
Theresa said…
Lovely blog, I am glad to discover this one. Theresa
T, beautiful. Your photos always make me want to wrap myself in them, and these feel light around my shoulders. Like summer and air.
Sam said…

sam lamb said…

I love the view of the ocean. It is so different from all the mountain views I have in my world. Makes me want to go to the coast. Thank you for sharing your blog and photos with me. It was lovely to have met you.
Rachel said…
Your answer to both of these last lessons is so full of beauty...I especially appreciate your words accompanying this latest set.
That close-up of the petal is amazing!!!

Are these blooming in your area now?
Valerie said…
Simply, simply beautiful. Like a keepsake poem, or the quiet time just before dusk. Thank you for that.

lucy said…
gorgeousness abounds! each of these images is perfect in itself. the shot of the flowers in the vase is amazing -- you could crop the top off just above the mouth of the vase and have a perfect glowing shot of the water-filled glass vase, or crop the bottom off at the water line and have a the perfection of those elegant blooms. but the whole together is just amazing. thanks for sharing your beautiful work. i will continue to follow along!
andi said…
Thank you as always for sharing your extraordinary talent for bring light through your images into our lives.
Jane said…

Oh, wow, ther ARE intensely romantic- beautiful shots!
Funny, apparently I threw a capital I at teh end of ali and it looks more like all... just call me typogirl :-)
raining sheep said…
Wow, such gorgeous photos T. One of my favorite flowers. So ethereal. And as usual, the words so fitting and beautiful.
life in yonder said…
1, 2, 4 & 5 are my favourites. The soft white petals. I can see the "romantic" in them through your photos. The landscape is gorgous!
