Flower in the Forest
While I have the digital macro on the camera, one still fights the wind moving the branches of a bush or stem of a flower. I was drawn to this purple flower in the sea of green of this wildlife sanctuary. I took quite a few pictures waiting for the wind to stop the swaying. I did get a few that show good detail of the flower. Still in reviewing them all, this one is the what was chosen – the blurred moving one with the flower moving off camera.
I like it for the light coming down strong from above, but then through the petal tot he point of washing the color out. Even the green of some other plant is highlighted and backlit in the background. I like the soft curl of the petals with the hard lines of the stamen. (Is stamen right? I really should look that up!) I like the BIG flower in the foreground with all the background lost in burst of color.
