    These pale pink fuchsias were suspended from a hanging basket at the famous Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC, Canada. I loved the way they seemed to capture and transform the sunlight in their fragile, transparent petals.

    Dancing in the Light

    Sensitive, delicate and bold.
    These lovely flowers are indeed "dancing in the light".
    The lovely rhythm is repeated simply and softly in the understated background to complete this fine composition.
    It is as thought the flowers are emitting their own light. I almost hear music.



    Bright and cheerful! Love the ambiance.
