This image was also taken at our friend's open garden event, this was such a beautiful clematis - maybe someone knows the name of it? The bloom was about the size of a saucer! I have darkened the background to show the bloom to full effect but I did not want a completely black background, I wanted some sign of the leaves surrounding it.
Thank you for all your comments regarding my last upload, and for your constructive comments - much appreciated. I promise I will try to catch up soon!
