As I mentioned yesterday, I did find a more local plant but I was well late.  It is good to know where to find it next year though.  In the meantime, here’s a shot from 2007 that’s a nice memory.

Yellow can be difficult, especially when a flower has a bit of waxy texture.  An overcast or in this case rainy day helps cut the glare that even a polarizer can’t always reduce.

    Excellent capture of a yellow flower – they are difficult, especially in sun. 🙂

    This is a beautiful yellow, and the purple detailing is especially nice. The yellow water lily I found is known for purple spots on its pads; now I’m wondering whether there are more instances of purple and yellow as a combination in the plant world. I’ll have to watch for it.

  4. The overall darkness in the image does a good job making the yellow stand out.

  6. Beautiful. I find myself underexposing yellow as much as three stops. Collateral benefit is I get a nice dark background for contrast.

    Yellow always presents a special challenge. I agree that underexposure and increased saturation are the keys. I’ve only seen the pink ones in the wild, but I hope to find some yellows too.
