Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

Backlit Photographs of my Garden.

Against-the-light

 It is not that often we garden people take pictures with backlight in our garden but it is rather charming and perhaps we should use this photo technique a bit more frequently.

I read an article in takegreatpicture.com  about the backlight technique.
" Backlight is certainly not the easiest type of light with which to work, but taming it is a lot less difficult than you think." read the whole article Backlight Busters by Russ Burden

 






 My greenhouse on fire

 These photos are taken in November a few years ago, I think they are pretty nice, it is a calmness in them that I like, perfact the backlight effect helped to enhance that feeling.


Herbs and Kale in a cold greenhouse



It is Blooming Friday again my friends and the theme for this week is against-the-light. And this is my contribution, if you pop over to Katarinas place Roses and stuff there you can meet more participants from all over the globe. Enjoy! I end this post with a little Dahlia. It is a Dahlia Mignon 'Firebird' with backlight of course. 





I wish you all a lovely weekend/ Tyra

Don't be a stranger my friend - Do write something!

Vilka underbara bilder bara älskar ditt växthus. Roligt att surfa runt på blommig fredag bjuds ju på både fin musik och vackra bilder. Ditt växthus ser så drömskt ut. Hoppas du får en fin fin helg/Gela

I love your greenhouse. Can imagine how nice and cosy it is inside! Your sweet dahlia against the light is also smashing!

Hi Tyra, your greenhouse-on-fire photos look lovely! So does the dahlia. That's a gorgeous colour! Thanks for the links about backlight photography. I'd love to check them out.

Have a great weekend!

Ruben said...

Thank you, Tyra, for shredding light upon this topic! And not just back light, although your pictures are stunning.
Have a nice day!

Tyra your pictures are gorgeous! The one of your greenhouse "on fire" is amazing. I'll have to read that article, as I have a hard time getting good backlit shots.

Backlighting is the best, dear Tyra! Your greenhouse is the GH of my dreams, inside and out! Our hill is situated so that nearly all shots are backlit, especially in spring and fall when the sun is lower in the horizon. It is pure magic. :-)

gittan said...

Wow, det är så läckert! Ja gvill minnas ha tagit en liknande morgonbild. Nu gläds jag åt att solcellskloten som hänger i mitt växthus lyser när jag kommer hem om kvällen. Allt ljus är vackert! Ha en fin helg / gittan

Vilket underbart ljus det är i bilden med det brinnande västhuset :) Jätteläckert! Tror att man skulle bara fota rätt av och se vad det blev av det, istället för att bry sig om "fotoregler", det brukar bli väldigt fina bilder när man är impulsiv :)

Så även ni har fått snö - hua mig! Vi fick storm, regn och åska mitt i stan men utanför stan, var det snöfall har jag hört. Nä, det var lite för tidigt :)

ha en himla skön helg, kram ♥

Ditt upplysta växthus ser verkligen inbjudande ut, Tyra! Så läckert!

What a magical play house you have, Tyra! Outstanding photos & I have your wonderful music playing in the background. Such a pleasant visit this morning!

I've got all the makings for tabbouleh except the fresh parsley which I'll have to go BUY today. Mine is all gone. :(
