Its been a little over a week now since I originally took this photograph. I had originally captured this photograph in color with my digital camera. But once I got back to my digital darkroom (aka my computer) I realized how stunning this photograph would be in black and white. What makes this photograph stunning in a monochrome tone is how the light falls on the photographic subject, the flowers.
The sun was just beginning to rise as I snapped this photograph of the flowers. You can see shadows on the ground as well. Areas of light and dark are what you want to capture when composing a good photograph in monochrome. After doing a little cropping and adding a frame, I knew I wanted to save this photograph for release on a Monday for the Monochrome Weekly blog meme.
If you would like to purchase products featuring this photographic print, I have made them available for a limited time in my Cafe Press Shop.
