Spring Has Arrived! Roses Blossoming Time-lapse

My mother’s flower garden is beautiful.

Every Spring tons of roses pop up. It seems like they sneak up, starting with a few buds, then all of a sudden “pop, pop, pop” they all sprout and open up into beautiful flowers just in time for Mother’s Day.

She’s actually got a variety of beautiful perennial flowering plants. Her garden collection includes a variety of roses, irises, lilacs, petunias, marigolds, sunflowers, and her favorite- Shasta Daisies.  Colors range from various shades of vibrant and soft pink to red, white, purple, yellow, and orange. And they’re so wonderfully fragrant.

It’s such a blessing to see them blossom and I was able to capture roses coming into full bloom using my iPhone Xs  rapid sequence film frame feature called time-lapse. It’s actually the capturing of each image that is slower, but when played at normal or high speed, the image sequence appears faster, creating the impression of motion. Interestingly enough, a man named F. Percy Smith debuted his film The Birth of a Flower in 1910, which was the first use of time-lapse in nature photography.

      I can’t enough of them! Been filming them all day, so much so that my both my cameras overheated 🙂
