Last night the setting sun was throwing unusually spectacular golden light which was bouncing off the flat bottom of a huge giant grey cloud. The light through the iris petals was almost coppery. #1 is a clump of purple and yellow iris(the yellow hasn't bloomed yet), interplanted with Lamb's Ear, wild dovefoot geranium, hens and chicks, and bronze fennel. #2 and #3 is breaking the rule "never shoot a photo into the sun", which I break this rule a lot. I got these by holding the camera at knee height and not looking through the viewfinder(which I also do a lot), I liked the unplanned composition and effects.
