Flowers in our garden - a different view i

Posted by
dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 30 March 2009 in Plant & Nature.

Apart from the Silly Tuesday post tomorrow, this week I will be posting photos of flowers. Mainly flowers from our garden that have been posted before, and now photographed again, but differently. These have all been done in the last couple of days, so are obviously limited to what is in the garden at the moment.
Today's shot is of the Eugenia flower, the original photo can be seen here.
I hope you enjoy the series.

Love the treatment here Rob. This soft, milky background really suits the delicate subject. I also love the way you framed it with the stem slowly disappearing into the mist...
