Probably my last gentian image for the year, although I have yet to photograph a bottle/closed gentian.

    Exquisite. How the flower manages to fancy itself up that way is one thing. How you managed to capture it all is something else. Technical skill counts of course, but so does patience. And experience.

    I was out in real sunshine today, but I wasn’t nearly patient enough. I was too eager to see what was going on in all my usual haunts. With luck, I can find some time to get back before the next bout of rain sets in.

    • One reason I visit flowers, or other subjects, multiple times is to create a familiarity which helps improve compositions, etc. There are many times when you get it right on first encounter but often it is a repeat and learn process.

      Glad to hear you got some sun finally. When you’ve been holed up for a while it can take time to get back in the rhythm.


  9. What a beautiful flower. I’ve never seen anything like it before.

  10. Have enjoyed reading your blog and viewing your images. I especially like your landscapes, closeups, and abstracts. I fell in love with abstract nature photography a couple of years ago, though most of my work is through a macro rig. I don’t get as many chances to compose landscapes as I would like, but I love them just as much. Found your site while searching for what other photographers are doing and/or have done in the abstract nature genre.
