Lately we have been having a lot of rain which has weighted down any peonies that were blooming in my garden. On the plus side, the photos I have taken during breaks in downpours are full of raindrops. I was worried that I would completely miss seeing these beautiful deep red peonies in bloom so I brought them inside to enjoy. The morning sunlight was pouring over them when I took this photo. The loose petals were the first to drop and this flower arrangement did not last very long after.
I used the flash on my camera to provide fill light which most pros advise you to try to avoid. The colour image was very contrasty, which of course works very well for the black and white image.
