Dramatic Daylilies


These Daylilies are bathed in warm evening light at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa. Flowers can be a challenge to capture as beautifully as they are in real life. Using backlight or sidelight can add drama and mystery to your images. Daylilies have many blooms starting and finishing on the same stem which leaves a lot of unsightly stuff that you have to be aware of. The old blooms can be removed but that old part of the stem is still not very pretty. I like to frame my images to include some negative space if possible. However, most of these images were cropped during processing to exclude unnecessarily busy backgrounds or to better frame the flower. Hope you enjoy my daylily series and as there are a lot more in my archives waiting to be processed. Cheers!
