Nighttime flower

Trying to find something nicer to look at than the constant barrage of news, I spent some time last night experimenting with taking nighttime shots of some of the flowers in Freeway Park by my house. Since using the ‘macro’ (closeup) mode of my camera gives it a very shallow depth of field, by shooting at night I was able to get nice deep blacks behind the flowers, while the flash brought out the colors of the petals. On some of the shots you can see the evening dew hanging off of the flowers.

I think they came out fairly decently, myself — but feel free to judge for yourself!
