Daily Beauty

John Ruskin wrote: “Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty, if only we have eyes to see them.”

Recently a friend brought some flowers from her garden, including some orange rhododendron blossoms. I was intrigued by intersection of branch, blossom, and stem for the blossom — the colours and the way the light played with those surfaces. Indeed, as Ruskin wrote, nature was painting pictures of infinite beauty and I was able to witness some of them during that photo shoot.
