Last week on Monochromia I posted a photograph of a pond with geese swimming in the rain. You can view the post HERE. The photographs of the poppy flowers and buds above were taken the same evening after the rain shower passed.
I have always been mesmerized by the Poppy. The detail of its creation; the incredible bud from which the flower blooms, the intricate detail of the center of the bloom, the delicate, flowing petals, and the passionate color. Unique and beautiful.
Today is Thursday so you get two posts for one, so to speak! Be sure to visit Monochromia for my Thursday black and white photography post.
Love these pictures, Robyn, but the top one, and the one below it too, really get to me. Adrian
that’s a really beautiful gallery. I like this idea to show the decay of flowers, because there’s a lot of beauty in decay. I just made a post about tulips similar to yours.
Wonderful gallery of images of my favourite flower; beautiful Robyn 🙂
Beautiful images Robyn!
The top one looks like it tickles.
These are so pretty Robyn
I don’t know enough about cameras and settings, Robyn, but your results are stunning. The sequence would make a wonderful panel of pictures.
This photos are just perfect!
I love them too, Robin, and the way you’ve done the progression is so creative. Beautifully shot.
Wow, just so gorgeous.
