A Garden View

A Garden View

A pale lavender iris and coral bells

A large clump of this iris was on the property when we moved here--- I first saw them in bloom thru a thick morning fog. We have since called them Ghost Iris.

I will be busy with family celebrations for a few days-- not likely to have much internet time!

So stunningly beautiful words fail me Jennn. How lucky you to inherit such beauty on your property, in my case it was dandelions, which I'm still fighting a losing battle with SadWinkGrin
Rgds., Jim
PS.Enjoy your family celebrations

Jenn, the lighting, exposure, detail and comp. are all so perfect one might suspect this was done in a studio.
However, the background shows this to be in situ. And a perfect bg it is. You have the perfect DOF here.
I like what looks to be a subtle vignette effect as well.
I have to agree with Ronnie. This is an award winner.

A beautiful marriage of elements, the hazy green meadow background is a picture in its own right.
Fantastic control of the light, good detail in the whites, exposure spot on, it's a very good image 10++++

A perfect name for this iris. The background with its meadow like appearance is the perfect backdrop for it.
