Serenity Sunday: Iris intimacy

More of our white iris blossoms appeared last week and, after a light rain lasting several hours, I went out for a closer look at one of them.  The still-overcast sky and the lack of any breeze combined to provide ideal portrait conditions. Iris intimacy 8401

  1. Gary, that is absolutely gorgeous :).

  2. Beautiful macro. Wonderful composition and clarity. Delicious color!

      I don’t think anyone has ever commented with “delicious color” before! I think this may well be a prime example of something I read about in a science-fiction novel when I was a boy, which the author described as “intrasensory substitution.” Having come to appreciate your love of chromatic subtlety, I consider this a high compliment!

      Happily not–if you were an insect, you could crawl right in and right back out again without the slightest qualm about being stunned in the process. Heh, heh.

  3. Nicely composed and exposed, Gary. Wet and overcast was perfect for this beauty.

      There’s almost nothing I like better than wet and overcast. Ah, when that sky turns into the great softbox and the wind backs off–what more could one ask?
