The Making of “Sunshine” by Cheryl Eagers

Taken at the scenic Cloudehill Gardens in Olinda, Victoria, Sunshine showcases the floral beauty that’s present all across this wonderful venue. Standing just left of centre, the beautiful pink flower almost springs to life in front of us. A wonderful array of vibrant colors enhances the background, bringing the focal point back toward the main subject.

About the Experience

I decided to spend the weekend with a very good life-time friend of mine, Wendy. We spent the weekend in and around Olinda, taking in all the beauty that this area has to offer.

Of course, we couldn’t spend any amount of time here without heading out to the gorgeous Cloudehill Gardens! It’s now one of my favourite spots in all of Victoria. And it’s always great to take in the view alongside friends that you love.

Enjoying all the wonderful botanical bliss this place offered, I really lost myself in my excitement and enthusiasm. I could have spent an entire day at the gardens, but my time was unfortunately limited here. Nevertheless, I made sure to take the time to really enjoy myself and allow inspiration to find me.

My Thoughts

This picture shows just one of the countless blooms I saw during my visit. Whenever I take pictures of flowers, I feel like you need to bend down to try and capture it at a different angle. We all naturally look at gardens and flowers downward from our perspectives. By using your camera from a lower vantage point, you can get a ‘butterfly’ point of view.

This down-low view really enhances the natural beauty that blooming flowers offer. And it gives you a novel, more interesting perspective on the flowers we all love.
