Top Ten 2016 – Part 3

I am ending my Top Ten with 4 photos taken in the first half of 2016. I love taking Infrared photos of the patterns of lotus leaves at the Italian Gardens like in the top photo. The reflections are especially fascinating to me.

The photo below was taken one a day when my husband and I followed this stunning cloud up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway for almost 2 hours.

These flowers were photographed on my front porch railing in February. I like the gestures and relationships of the flowers.

The final photo is another Infrared. I love the personality of this tree and the way it is striding across the field.
