A Floral Image | Wow didn’t we have a lovely March here in Ireland! Spring seems to be about Cherry Blossoms now more then Tulips, at least where I live.
A Floral Image | A close-up image of a Calla Lily flower showing the detailing and texture of the white petals. Back in June last year I shared an image of a Calla Lilly called Hidden from Sight that eventually made it into my Top 10 Favourite images of 2011. Today I wanted to share another composition from that same session.
February, yup February is when I took this image. I actually shared an image I took of this Rhododendron back in April but had this version siting in my Aperture Library waiting for some love and attention. Well I made sure it got that today and wanted to share the final result with you. There is something quite special about a pure white flower; the delicacy and amazing texture of the petals. I hope you enjoy.
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.
The Calla Lily must be one of my favorite flowers. It has been a long time since I have attempted captured an image of this Lily as it is one of those flowers I find difficult to do justice too.
I posted an image of a single Crazy Daisy a little while back and thought I would follow-up today with a slightly different composition.
My Saturday sunrise trip to Trim Castle turned into an 11 hour photographic marathon and I loved every minute of it 🙂 The images from Trim should follow later this week but to get things kicked off I thought I would post this Crazy Daizy.
An early morning visit to the Botanical Gardens in Dublin treated me to a freshly watered Rhododendron. The flowers were in full bloom and saturated in heavy droplets of water.
Purple Crocuses were having way too much fun on my blog this Spring so I thought I would break up the party a little with an Anemone. They are a flowering plantsin the buttercup family Ranunculaceae in the north and south temperate zones.
This Calla Lilly was captured in May 2008 and is one of the most pivotal images in my portfolio. I remember the day I was in the Botanical Gardens for the first time and happening across a bed of Calla Lilies.
I am currently traveling so this is a post I prepared last week and is being automatically published. Technology eh! its wonderful 🙂 I produced an image of this Orchid last year, in fact the image won a competition which I was delighted about. This is an even closer view of that incredible detail in…
As we continue to head deeper into Autumn and then on to a fairly inevitable harsh winter I thought I would share the above image taken at the beginning of spring last year. It’s nice to be reminded that new life is just around the corner I think. Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II Lens:…
