Day lilies

This time of year is so special. Daylight extends from before 6AM to 9PM and beyond. Dusk is long and its light luxurious. I often find myself wandering in my gardens at this time, listening to the cardinals chirping away before nesting, and watching the soft light illuminate the flowers. It's still early for many of my plants, but the day lilies are in full bloom and magnificent.

Here are a couple of black and white photos I recently took as twilight approached. I really like to present flowers in black and white, as it removes the color aspect while emphasizing shape and textures. I hope you agree.
