Beautiful Flower Photos

A beautiful young woman I once knew passed away suddenly as the result of a car crash seven years ago. A journalism student and avid shutterbug, her selfies, portraits and beautiful landscape photos were an inspirational backdrop at her memorial service. The slideshow of her work was a reminder of the importance of recording life — the people we love, the places we admire.

When her friends and families were looking to something to preserve and honour her memory it was fitting that they came up with the idea of a photo show. Last Light, opened in Goderich in the spring of 2007 for the first time, featuring one of Sarah's favourite subjects — sunsets. The idea was for a contest and sale with people bidding on entries they liked and the profits going to support Community Living, another of her passions. My daughter and I both won that year, a result that was very special to both of us.

The event has evolved in the years since with increased competition and category options. One of the ones this year is Yellow and the wheels certainly began spinning on that one. Envisioning what subject I could choose took me on a little creative adventure but kept meandering back to one thing... flowers.  When it comes to colour... any shade, any hue, it can usually be found in a garden. These gorgeous photo collections from some of the best online resources for images include them all:
