My mother's jewelry - a tribute in macro

We visited my mother’s grave on Mother’s Day and I have been thinking about her all week, so I wanted to post something before the week passed. The light at the end of the day in the beautiful Mountain View Cemetery in Pocatello, Idaho, was coming through the trees and so it was perfect for a quick HDR.Β  I also set up some of my mother’s jewelry recently and took some close-up shots with my macro extension tubes. This is a tribute to you, mom! I miss you so much. πŸ™‚

Photography Note:

HDR is High Dynamic Range, which is a process where you take three photos of the same scene: light, medium and dark. Then you blend the three images to get the optimal mix of light, so it closer to what your eye sees.

They say clothes come and go, but jewelry lives on forever. I think I agree with that. I love wearing and photographing my mother's jewels.
