Seasonal colors of the night - inspired by my garden. My garden is my haven, it is the place where peace finds me and my spirit is at ease as my creativity comes to life. The energy, movement and vivid colors of the flowers create an environment where I feel most at home. I am delighted to share this magical place through this series of photographs. My intent was to capture the enchanted moments of growth that occur when everything seems still. At night my garden has a different energy than the day and the surreal beauty of the night awakens in a place disconnected from the world outside.
