Dark and Light

Lilly.  Nikon D7000
4th August 2012

One of the dark lillies was looking splendid today.  The Lilly flowers have lasted really well this year, despite being pounded by heavy downpours.

I also decided that it was probably time to check on the progress of the Anthotype of the Peony.   The little sunlight we have had over the last 2 months and 6 days has worked its magic and caused the exposed  pigment to fade.  The areas of the image that were covered up by the dark parts of the positive image have retained a decent colour.

The light areas have faded really well, giving a very useful contrast.

If I could be sure of more sun, I may try another image too!
