Cosmos in Bloom

A few years back, I tossed some orange cosmos seeds in a bed out front. I’ve been collecting the seeds and spreading them ever since. I’ve now got a few yellow cosmos–mutants!

I got a cool background in the next one by holding the flower still while the wind blew the other plants around.

These are pictures I took while experimenting with creating dark backgrounds. I mean, sure. Unless there are enough stops between the foreground and the background, you can’t really get a super dark background. But, I wanted to see what the results would be like under different lighting situations than I had in my shade garden.
