Hi all 😃 My entry for this week’s challenge, set by Ann-Christine.
Backlit flowers are always great for being able to see them in detail.
For these next shots, I had the light source behind the alstroemeria; you can really see the construction & detail of the petals; great for macro shots.
The sun glinting through the trees is always a favourite; you can get great flare off the lens with an added bonus of shadows & silhouettes.
The sun through the foliage of this horse chestnut tree really picks out the autumn colours.
Backlit clouds can create great reflections & shadows as well as explode in colour.
I like to have a bit of fun with composition with subjects & backlighting. Here, one of the Kelpies looks to be eating the sun.
Next I have the sun & moon respectively being cradled by branches.
A great double sunburst at the canal for the next shot.
Lensy likes a bit of backlighting as well, first with a candle…
…& then some lens-flares with the sun.
The colours on this wee bridge in a play-park really show up well with the sun shining through.
Finally, a backlit scene of a hielan coo having an early morning drink at the canal.

Stellar gallery, Jez. I love the macro detail of the flowers, the moon in the tree branches, the sun over the lake, and like so many others the rainbow was a fabulous place to be at the right time! In my opinion I think you saved the best for last. The cow… Well done.
Beautiful captures backlit, Jez! I can see you had some fun too – and lensy is there as well. Great! I love the flowers and landscapes extra, and the rainbow bridge.
Thank you so much, Leya 😊 A really fun challenge 😊
Sucha good selection of photos for this challenge Jez.I think the backlighting worked especially well for the daffodils .
Thanks, Anne 😊
Jez, your selection of pictures is great! I especially like your flower images and nature scenes, these are beautifully captured – so sharp with lots of details.
Thank you so much, Sylvia 😊
Lovely. Great idea to think about the back light.
Wonderful backlit examples Jez! I especially like your floral images.
Love the Sunburst click
Thank you, my friend 😊
You are welcome
Awesome post, sweetie! It’s almost impossible to narrow down to a favourite shot, though the moon cradled in the branches might *just* do it. 😍
What a fabulous gallery Jez. The rainbow bridge – I thought you had done some magic with lensy at first 😂
I thought the same, and I was there! 🤣
Thanks, Brian 😊
