Inner light

My wife planted some morning glory seeds earlier this spring in some indoor containers. We transplanted the young plants to our deck where they are currently doing just fine and where I took a few shots of some of the blooms in the early morning sun.

I experimented with a few shots situating the sun within the blooms. I think the resulting images speak to the energy of life that is within all living things, and that that energy is not of the living things themselves, but of a singular source above all living things.

God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. For in Him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17-27-28

And by the way, the big blue spot in front of my right eye has finally gone away.

Wonderful shot! I love the colours! The flower almost looks like it's made of fabric.

thanks for stopping by. Those blossoms are very fragile - a rainstorm or strong wind can tear them quite easily. But it also makes them very translucent.

This is a beautiful shot, James. I love how the sunlight shines through the flower. Excellent lighting! The light reflects nicely off the spiderweb. Amazing piece.
