morning glory glowing edges

Another purple morning glory with the added effect of glowing edges (from Photoshop).  Besides doing interesting things to the colors - the added whiteness highlighted the twisting tendrils in the center of this mandala.  The tendrils always reaching for the sky.  Every morning when I went out to see them I was never the first - the bees always beat me to the flower, you could tell by the tell tale bits of pollen they would leave in their wake. In this picture and others, it reminded me of fire works.

Purple Morning Glory

All colors in this flower that only opens for a short while in the morning, this morning glory purple graduating to white in a square (8 pie piece sections of the original picture). Think I took more pictures of the purple morning glories - just liked their deep rich color.

White Morning Glory

White is always a hard thing to photograph because it's so easy to blow out the detail on anything white. The throat of the flower has a pink/purplish hue and the stamens are visible with some detail in the whitest part of the flower. They were a delight to behold even if they were hard to photograph.
