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.
