Backyard Iris

Today I begin a series on flowers and vegetation (with a few exceptions thrown in). Flowers if the photographer is not very careful can become a cliche. Because flower photographs are so common, it requires harder work and creativity to make them interesting. Almost all of the flowers were taken either in our yard or our neighborhood.

NIKON D700 1/320 second F/8.0 ISO 800 150 mm (35mm equiv.)

Mathilde Collot from Fontainebleau, France

Your pictures are like flowers that you Jack! There is this particular job, you know that beauty so well with delicacy and sensitivity increase! The series begins with a sublime iris that seems out of her night!
