Aging Beautifully

Wisdom in wrinkles shown and shared.
How beautiful.

Bathed in beautiful late afternoon light, I shot this image with a shutter speed of 1/200. My focal length was 60 and my aperture was f/4.5. I didn't use a tripod but did go as close to my window as possible to make use of all the natural light there was. Actually I was lying down on the floor, holding the rose up to the best pocket of light and with my other hand I took the picture.

We need to go where the light is, whatever it takes.


  1. I like the angle you used: low and from behind.
    I'm also intrigued by your last comment -- to go where the light is.

  2. I agree; beautiful composition and stunning picture over all. :-)
