A Floral Image | I came across this Orchid in their Glasshouse dedicated to these types of flowers. I thought this unusual as it had not flowered yet. Added to that the sprinkelers had just been on and I could’t resist trying something a little different from the average Orchid photograph.
A Floral Image | I had a chance to visit our local Botanical Gardens here in Dublin and, as many of you will know this is one of my favourite places to visit in Dublin. This flower, known as a Asteraceae Dahlia ‘Ferncliff’ Decorative has a very large head and the space was densely populated. What drew me however was the tips and how the lavender transitioned into the white of the rest of the petal. I decided I’d break out the 100mm Macro Lens and focus on that detail, working very closely to the flower head and drawing out the detail, form and texture I was trying to convey in this image. I think it worked but I’ll let you be the judge.
