20 Beautiful Bokeh Photographs That Will Leave You Dazzled

The bokeh effect has to be one of the simplest, yet most visually stunning. It’s achieved by un-focusing (or blurring) out lights in an image which turns them into shiny circles! It normally helps if you have a high depth of field going on.

Some of the pictures you’ll see a few different shape lights, this is achieved by modifying the bokeh effect using a filter which goes over the front of the lens. So, enjoy these beautiful bokeh images!

    Great to see some beautiful bokeh from natural sources. Shaped bokeh from fairy lights is starting to wear a bit thin on me, but I just love it when it’s all nature’s work.

    Who would have thought you would get such great bokeh from light reflected from pebbles on a beach?
