I have been working on accessory stock all day. I also wanted to play with the contrast of night using my flash. I've never been a big fan of flash, but part of this project is playing around with the settings on my camera, so I can get better at using it. These photos aren't totally in focus, but I like the contrast of the light colored appearance of the Crape Myrtle against the dark night. These were taken from my balcony. Yes, our Crape Myrtle is a bit unruly and tall...almost as tall as the house.
It's interesting what I notice when editing photos. From one angle, you can see webs clinging to the branches. If you are having trouble seeing it, look along the center long branch.
