".....A shadow in the day time.... and a place of refuge from storm and rain. Isaiah 4: 6"

Just a tulip bud the day before
Neath' shadow after rain shower;
Sun light encouraged five more,
To bring forth their opened flower....
© Poetry by me, AJP

Somehow my shadow got on the background that I used behind this tulip when the sun was shining ..The background that I set up was black in color, but it turned gray from the brightness of the sun and my shadow became the background from the direction where I shot this picture. It had rained the night before and six of the tulips were opened and blooming yesterday morning.

5/7/2018 ~ This morning when I checked the tulips one healthy looking flower had already dropped off from its stem but there will be some more opening when it warms up through the day.

Best View in Light-box! Thank you!!!

    A lovely floral and a great shadow shot! I can see you holding your camera in the background and it makes for a very unique image.
