Last weekend I found a group of iris blooming at an arborteum. The hepatica haven’t bloomed yet, and the hellebore have just started to bloom, so it was a real surprise to find them. Here are two abstracts at high magnification:
The first image is a stack, but just a few images. The second image is a view down the throat of the flower. After doing a number of portrait images last year, I’ve been wanting to return to abstraction.
In the first picture, am I seeing tiny droplets of water or is that the texture of the petals?
Those are raindrops. I took this in a drizzle that turned into a downpour a while later.
The colors are pleasing, and the texture looks like glass.
Thanks, finding them was an unexpected pleasure.
LOVE your first photo!
So precious ! I love that 🌞
It was wonderful to find them blooming this early.
