Ghost

By taggart  
Ghost

One foggy morning, during our first spring at Shadyside, we saw that the huge clump of iris had come into bloom--

They looked like ghosts bobbing in the breeze-- Having no cultivar name, we called them Ghost Iris.

So, they are blooming again........

I will be overly busy for a couple of days, will catch up as I can.

Watcha Jennifer,
beautiful pic of a beautiful Iris.

Micrometer: measures in very small increments, my one is an imperial micrometer so measures in increments of 1/1000 inch.

Jenn, beautiful detail and colour with the exposure spot on. I think I might have been tempted to clone out the lighter area in the background to the left of the flower - it distracts a little from an otherwise wonderful image (or is it a ghost?)

I ran through the comments to see if anyone else mentioned the "ghost" and found that Mike did.
Otherwise, Jenn, this is so delicately presented, and I can see the ghostlike qualities. Love it.

Hi again, Jennn
Too lazy to seek the adjectives in Thesaurus, sorry. Smile
Without that clever book, fail to write how I'm in love with this image.
Thank you.
