My cousin, Sue, called me late last week telling me that the wild phlox were beautiful in their woodlot. She said mornings are the best time to see them but I have been engaged with other fun activities in the mornings that weren’t overcast so I didn’t get there until yesterday.
But I didn’t get there in the morning. I decided to take my chances in the evening as the sun was setting low enough to shine through the trees. I also took my tripod because I must be losing arm strength to hold my camera steady – especially in low light settings.
The light was great, and was changing so when I looked at an area I had already explored through my lens, I found new lights. Sue was right, it was magical. It was like a fairy land of lacy color.
I spent a long time and really enjoyed editing the images I got – but I think I might go back tomorrow morning to see if the different color and slant of morning light will make for some more fun shots.
