When I came home last night, the street light was shining on this hibiscus a day past its prime. That might have been due to the rain, its age, or this tiny snail I didn’t even notice until I put these shots on my computer and zoomed in a bit. Playing around, I couldn’t decide on a favorite. At one point I turned on a wall lamp a few feet way from it, thus the different light plays. In some of the darker shots, either the moon or a street lamp can be seen through the trees. Interesting playing around with night shots. In some, I intended the grainy, painterly effect. Who would think I could take flower shots every day for years and still be endlessly fascinated? Not a professional. Just a very engrossed amateur. Thanks, Cee.
Cee has requested that I keep on posting new photos of hibiscus and I haven’t disobeyed one of her suggestions yet, so here is yesterday’s crop. Two dinner plate sized hibiscus on my brand new bush by the kitchen door:
When eight of these Spanish Dancer hibiscus blooms showed up in full regalia on the same day, it was hard to pick a winner. You’ll see more of their sisters on another day. Don’t want to slight any of them. Click on any flower to see larger views of them all.
