I love the cast shadows on the top of white cakes, with the clusters of hydrangeas as a counterpoint to the beautiful smooth textures and dappled light. The brilliant backlighting while keeping the warm richness of the shadows was a challenge. I want to scoop up the entire scene with all my senses....taste, smell, touch, sound, sight...and enjoy the garden party. I invite you to do the same!
