Here are some better pics of my Fuchsia from the contest thread.
links 1-3, 7,10,11 won't work for me......
I'm working on it Murphy's law applies.
Ok, I finally convinced Comcast to accept all of the pics.
Please post more flowers!
Integral - they are all very beautiful. I imagine hummingbirds love that Fuchsia!
I love those pink and yellow roses!
Very lovely and very Fuchsia-ish in the close up shots, I think we are use to seeing the weeping style. Those are outstanding!
The first blossom of my Angel Trumpet flower!
I'll post some our flowers later. Meanwhile I curious about Integral's mysterious red flower.
Here is a really cool looking red fuchsia.
and another really cool looking flower
I have lots of these in the yard.
OK Larkspur, I have to pick your brain. What techniques do you use for lighting? Your pictures have the absolute best lighting ever. I can never get a handle on that.
I place the subject inside a squarish tent made of thin white material. I use three compact fluorescent spot lights. One one each side and one on the top.
Wow, you make weeds look like prize winning flowers!!!
Some of the tiniest weed flowers are absolutely gorgeous when you take a close look. Some of these flowers are only a few centimeters across.
I also have a soft spot for some of the small wild flowers. Around here we have some very nice native lillies including Camus, which used to be a staple of the native diet. I need to get off of the main roads to get some digital pics. I have lots of film shots buried away in boxes, but it is alot more fun to head out with a digital now and just snap away. I may have a trillium shot somewhere???
There is a weed that grows in my garden with teeny flowers that look like irises with vibrant purple, cobalt blue and yellow all in the one flower. Probably the most stunning flower I've ever seen and one third the size of the nail on my little finger.
I need to go dig out my flower photos and scan some in.
Thanks Evo. I think I like wild flowers because they are easiest to grow. These grow on a steep bank behind my house where most plants won't live.
Well, wild flowers thrive in conditions to which they have adapted. Living in the a hilly area, we see many wild plants that do quite well. We also have several invasive species that we introduced by people and are now displacing some native species.
Here are some common spring wild-flowers - violets:
...and bluets. (Tiny!!)
Oh! I love the bluets
I am not able ID this flower. Perhaps someone here knows...
Btw, does anyone else think that the black space to the right is unwanted?
A fat bud of Jasmine (sambac, I think)
