Just a quick simple Kaffir tonight - given my favourite Lucis Art Whyeth treatment.

Not much more I can say about this Smile

My favourite flower Alison and you've done it great justice. Mine are nearly in flower and I cannot wait. What lighting have you used to ensure the stark white background?? PM me and let me know the set up if you don't mind.

Cheers

Mike

Blimey - thank you everyone and Pete Smile

I've tried to get these flowers in the pot this year but despite my best efforts have failed to find any in the local garden centres. Fortunately one of the flower sellers in town has bunches of 5 stems for a couple of quid so I'm frantically taking lots and lots of shots of them while I can!

I'm just trying to heal my sisters very very sick computer Mike but shall get back to you before the evening is over.

Thank you again everyone Smile

Oh these are like hen's teeth at the moment Ann - certainly in my neck of the woods. I'll check my flower-man again later this week and buy more whether I need them or not! Next year I'll try to buy some pots.

Meanwhile my battle with computers continues - I'm working on my sisters sick machine and to cap that my new one snuffed it again yesterday Sad Thank goodness I have the old one to use!

A fantastic image; I love the white background, makes for a very simple yet strong composition. The colours and delicacy of the flowers come through great.
Well deserved HC - congrats...

Thank you again everyone! I'm determined to find these flowers in more shades for next year - I suspect I'll be trawling the gardening sites before too long trying to track some down.

Meanwhile I have a couple or so shots left to upload and then I'll find something else to photograph.
