We’ve had a REALLY hot and dry summer in Toronto so far. Its been so hot and dry that I have never seen our backyard so lifeless and dry that whenever I step out into the backyard I would hear the brown brittle grass (well, whats left of it) crunching under my feet on every step! The state of our backyard right now is really in stark contrast to what it was about a month and a half ago when the weather was nice and mild and everything in the backyard was full of life and ripe with photographic opportunities! Thankfully I took a lot of pictures of the backyard during that time so I’ll have stuff to process for the future. Think of it as saving for a rainy day except that I saved the pictures for the opposite reason.
Anyways, here are some pictures of the daylilies in the backyard when they were in full bloom. I love how the flowers are backlit by the warm sunlight and makes it seem like they’re glowing… And who said that you shouldn’t shoot against the sun?? :P
