Morning Glory Glow.

Calystegia sepium, hedge bindweed, is a very common invasive species in the Northwest. Although beautiful, these plants have creeping vines that climb and bind on everything in their path. New plants can start from cutting, so disposing of the vines by cutting can actually spread the problem. The delicate white trumpet blossoms make for wonderful photography, however.

I took these pictures as part of a project trying to achieve a soft-glow effect through filters. I used a piece of black-colored women’s nylons over the UV filter. The result is a soft glowing aura.
