Clementine Rose

By chase
An Aquilegia vulgaris whose name is Clementine Rose.
I saw this & a white variety at my local garden centre & really...who could resist?
The flowers are quite small,about 1" across & each stem bears many flowers.
Another name for these types of Aquilegia is 'Granny's Bonnet'
Taken against a piece of white muslin using daylight.

F22 manual mode
20 secs with tripod
ISO 100
Spot Metering
Raw converted in CS2,curves adjusted,slight crop & border added.

As always,larger is worth a look,if you can.

Thankyou for looking.

It's like a ballad dancer, throwing arm and legs in every direction. Think I'm drawn to spiky flowers because they are so dynamic. Well captured.
simply beautiful. I can see why it would be hard to resist bringing one of these home to photograph. you captured lovely lighting and details.

Can this flower be grown in the garden ?
I admire the lighting and of course the presentation.
If this does not receive the Editor's Award dont worry as it has been given the RSG-M TIP-TOP Award .

Thankyou all.

Rob..yes these are grown in the garden & they seed everywhere,I bought this & a white one,they are now firmly planted.If I can manage to save some seed at the end of the flowering I will gladly send you some,although I have my doubts that they will come true as these plants are very promiscuous !Thanks for the special award too.
