Project Green a little late! :) I love these shots and I am glad you are back!

Hi moi,
I have a feeling that this Aristotle bloke knew what he was talking about. Love the way you captured the light through the leaves and I bet you are chuffed to bits to have that blossom at your house.
Not sure I can do anything about a lavender coloured dress but I will keep looking...lol

Cheers Mark

This is so lovely Moi. I love the simplicity and peacefulness i get from the picture. The golden light is gorgeous.

Really delicate and intricate shots. A great photo.

tommie said...

love the way the light shines through these. So springy!

ps, these remind me of the series Pottery Barn had a couple of years ago of ferns.

Pretty!

You asked about the Bärlauch on my blog. The leaves of the plant are what are eaten, and they taste like garlic a little bit. Truth be told, I don't care for it so much :-}

Hilary said...

That inspires a walk in the woods.. beautiful!

Ash said...

Wonderful images...the golden light is almost surreal :)

Hello Moi,
Yes ...what a combination Aristoteles and photography, but its well found I must admit that for sure, Your photography is still a great inspiration for me ...

Have a good day greetings form JoAnn ( now in Holland

Kerri said...

Wow! These are fabulous! They take my breath away!!

christy said...

I really like how you've captured light in these -- your images are not just about the subject but about light. It reminds me of Impressionist paintings, because the artists sought to capture exactly the same thing -- light and "the moment."

Lovely.

RC said...
