A Visit to the Public Gardens (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

I was photographing this plant (possibly Swiss chard) when I happened to catch sight of how it looked when the sun passed through it! Moments later my camera was upside down, I was lying on the ground, and within a minute, the above image was made!

After the brilliant colour of the first image, I really enjoyed working with this pale flower, carefully placing the bright yellow on the top left, and the delicate lines of purple on white at the bottom left.

I am absolutely certain someone placed this petal in the centre of this spray of leaves - but it wasn't me. The contrast in colour between the magenta of the flower petal, and the rich green leaves is just perfect.
