Abstract Daylily

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 6 July 2009 in Plant & Nature.

Another forum challenged us to photograph an abstract over the 4th of July weekend. This was my submission. Taken in the evening, outdoors, natural light, 105mm macro, tripod. It was fun!


I have been INTERVIEWED three times by photo-buddies:
