O Lord how manifest are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them: The earth is full of thy riches.

Psalms 104:24

After seeing how I covered up most of the Asiatic Lilies in a closer self portrait that I posted yesterday which I since removed..Here is another experiment showing more of the flowers:) It is challenging to pose with flowers especially if you want to be a part of the scene but not the focal point... yet not have the focal range so far back that it diminishes the flowers and causes them to recede in the background. When you can't see yourself in a self timed portrait it is tricky to get the best angle.

    This is gorgeous! Your narrative gives an indication of how exacting these images can be to set up.. but you make it look so easy. Beautiful work!!
