Hibiscus in Daylight: Flower of the Day, Oct 6, 2017

This is the same hibiscus I showed a night shot of two nights ago. Who needs diamonds or yachts when she can have a flower like this constantly blooming to enjoy every morning?

Midnight Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, Oct 5, 2017

I went out at midnight to get something from the car and saw two new hibiscus glowing in the light from beside the door.  Of course, I had to capture them, which brought the cats streaming down from the garage. Tricky getting in and out to get the camera as they are wonderful little escape artists, with two or three distracting me while the other two or three slip into the house. Then I had the camera on the wrong setting, so after spending a half hour trying to work with the photos, it finally occurred to me I could go back out with a flashlight to capture better color. In the end, however, once on the correct setting, I could use available light. Then had to narrow the choices down.  This beauty was the winner.

Night Studies, Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, Sept. 22, 2017

(Please enlarge all photos by clicking on the first one.)

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.

Dinner Plate Hibiscus Twins: Flower of the Day, Sept 12, 2017


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:
