Day Lily, Day Lilies, Lily, Lilies, Flowers
The day lilies are abundant this year in Northeast Wisconsin. These are a couple of specimens found in our front yard.

Every year we have a clump of day lilies that bloom around the utility pole in the front yard of our home. This year, will all the rain we’ve had, they are putting on quite a show.

Lily of the Light

Easter, Easter Lily, Lily, White Lily, FlowerI took this photo over a year ago.  I had some time and just began fiddling with an Easter lily and light. I enjoy experimenting with new camera settings and lighting arrangements.

During this session I may have taken a hundred photos and I’ll discard 99 of them.  This one I kept for it’s unique look – created by shining a small flashlight on the back of the flower, giving it this luminous quality. A little post processing work and I created something I felt worthy of a post.

First on the Scene

Make a note on the calendar – the first lily to display its beauty at our house this season happened on Wednesday, June 29th.  As you can see, there will be many others to follow, but there’s something noteworthy about the first one. 

I’ve been keeping my photographer’s eye on the flower bed and could see the bloom was about to begin.  The slender, green pods were beginning to blush.

For comparison, I took a picture of the same lily at the beginning of its opening, in the early morning light of the rising sun. (The smaller image on the right.)  This would have been a good time to set up a time-lapse camera – if I had one.

The “grand opening” continued through the day until full bloom, as captured in the larger photo, taken in the early evening of the same day.
