Iris Buds

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 26 April 2010 in Plant & Nature.

I was inspired to take pictures of Iris in bud by this image by Larry Lefever. I took this picture yesterday when it was overcast. Added several of my textures.

I love the pastel colors here. Also, the soft focus, and implied depth with the out of focus flowers in the BG.

Very delicate . . a prime example of 'less is more' because this style releases character otherwise not seen.

You have captured fall with the texture and color of the leaves. I've just come in for a quick break after digging up my dahlia tubers, and your photos are a treat. We have similar plants, but you have such an eye for composition and light.
