Photographing flowers

After completing Emily Quinton's online photography course, I've really been enjoying playing with light, apertures and composition over the past few weeks. And something I couldn't wait to photograph was my favourite flower, the beautiful tulip. As you will see I decided to play with a colour theme of yellow. 

I took these shots in the afternoon a few weeks back when the sun only had an hour left before setting. Just as it was tipping its hat and saying goodbye, it came streaming through my living room window and the angle really caught the tulip in my last shot. I'm not sure how great that image is as a photo but capturing it really made my heart skip a beat.
