Photo of the Month – Spring Flowers

Hi Folks:

At the end of every month I create a post with my favourite image of those I’ve taken in the past month.  However, since this site belongs to both Marcia and me, this month I’m going to break with tradition and post one of Marcia’s images instead.   For some strange reason she doesn’t have the same fascination with shutter speeds, f/stops and depth of field tables that I do, but she has a good eye.  This image was made yesterday, using Marcia’s new cell phone camera, while we were walking around the Rockland district of Victoria.  I admit I did push it around in Lightroom a little bit, but she nailed the lighting and composition to start with and all I did was accent it.  It’s an image of a group of hellebores, or ‘winter roses’ as they’re sometimes called.  These were growing in one of the gardens on the Lieutenant Governor’s grounds.

Winter Roses

Spring flowers.  January.  I’ll get used to it eventually…

Now go out and make some photographs!

Mike.
