FALL FLOWER


Sometimes the back side of a flower is more interesting than the front.
I believe this is a Dahlia and I loved the star effect of the petals.
As always click on the picture to see the detail.
Mr. Mapper has some pretty awesome pictures up on his blog now. I especially love the one of Yosemite. Just click on his name in my sidebar to see his work.

A beautiful flower has two sides. Front and back. 99% of all photographers forget or have never seen the backside of a flower.

Very, very beautiful and really good idea !
Thank you for your kind visits on my blog!
I have now our older daughter and her children here and next week we will get our younger daughter and her family here. We are very strongly inside the life :)

This flower is so beautiful and looks so "healthy" ! I thought dahlias did not like the cold....

Meredith Teagarden said...

I must agree. Beautiful from this side!

Hi Sue - thanks for popping in while I was away!!!

I love how you took the back-end of this shot - the star is just perfect!!

You are right, this flower looks very interesting from this perspective.
Thanks for commenting on my chestnut tree sketch. I like eating chestnuts boiled or roasted as a desert and also with a main course, with baked pork, chicken or duck (I mix them with potatoes that bake in the meat's gravy). I also like them as a desert, in a slightly sweet puree (preferably with a bit of vanilla, too) either simple, or with a bit of cream. Then there's the marrons glacées, but those I buy ready to eat, I never tried making them myself...

It is amazing to see a picture so fine that I can determine the type of flower just by looking at the back of it! Great dahlia photo - from a different perspective! My dad always grows the most giant and beautiful ones - I haven't had as great luck myself.

I've seen a couple of photos liek this. Yours is exquisite...wonderful.

Merisi said...

Flowers do have more than one good side, I firmly believe that! :-)

Kerri said...

I so agree! I love seeing the underside of the flowers! Great work!!

MedaM said...

Oh, this is beautiful photo of really lovely yellow Dahlia. Your idea to take the back side of the flower is just great with great effect.
