When I was out erranding yesterday I spotted some dahlia in the cut-flower section of the market. Dahlias are awesome, the way the petals look like scoops and how they unfurl and form petal pom-poms. I've never had the opportunity to photograph them before. To say I was giddy would be an understatement. ;-)
After spending a bit of time with them, I love dahlias even more.
The yellow areas of the orange/red/yellow blooms just glowed, like they were lit from within.
