Lily of the Valley are probably best known for their small white bell shaped flowers and their fragrance, but this time of year those things are long gone, however the foliage by itself can still provide some charm. A few days ago I noticed the low afternoon sun illuminating the leaves of the plant. I thought the sharp contrast between the lit areas and the shaded areas created an interesting image. Below they show off their autumn color change.
The photos also demonstrate how the type of lighting can change a view from hard to soft.
