Radiant

The back of a nasturtium leaf illuminated by soft Autumn sunshine.

There was a brief glimpse of sun that day during almost three weeks of wild wet and windy weather.

There has been an abrupt change from light bright warm days to pretty limited light levels: darker in the mornings and early evenings now; low cloud adding a bit of extra gloomth in between.

  1. Oh yes, absolutely wonderful and striking!!! Love the lighting, esp the contrast between the flatter, overall lighting towards upper left and all the textures down towards lower right. Also love “low cloud adding a bit of extra gloomth in between.”, and the memories of my mum growing nasturtiums about 60 years ago.

    1. Thank you, Adrian! The shadow bottom left bothers me and I wish it wasn’t there but cropping it out would have reduced the image too much, losing the effect.

      Nasturtiums are strange beasts and I haven’t got the measure of them yet. The TV gardener Alys Fowler says they are so easy to grow you could sow seeds in sweepings off the floor and they would thrive. The RHS says they are so easy, children can grow them (patronising πŸ™‚ ). I find them much fussier; they come and go like the breeze!

      1. Oh no, I disagree >>> I hadn’t actually noticed the shadow at bottom left, but now you’ve mentioned it I think it helps the image, by providing a kind of frame or closure to the bottom left corner of the picture. A πŸ™‚
