Flowers: My August Photo #4


Carrying on with #MyAugustPhoto (a photo a day throughout August) here is a shot I took earlier in the garden. As the sun was shining I got my camera out whilst toddler was napping to capture all the flowers that are currently in bloom. I took so many that it was difficult to choose which one to publish. Then when I did pick one I couldn't decide if I should post the original (below) or the cropped shot above so I've settled on showing both! I like the original because there are so many flowers in it and it would make a great enlarged print. It's quite a dreamy shot. On the other hand the cropped shot brings the wonderful detail of the flowers and buds to the viewer's attention. Which image do you prefer?


#MyAugustPhoto Linky: I'm posting a photo a day in August & have created a brand new linky for this month. If you would like to link any of your photographs just click on the link below. Looking forward to seeing them! :)

  1. beautiful! I love the cropped one - I like the focus on the intricacies of the petals. What a beautiful sunny day too! I am going to brighton tomorrow and the weather is not looking quite so wonderful!

    1. Thanks very much Helena! It was lovely today, although pretty windy. It seems to be like this at the moment; one day of sunshine followed by one day of drizzle. Hope it brightens up for you! :)

  3. I prefer the top one.
    The detail is stunning and I love the way the veins stand out glossy against the mat petals.
    I don't have much orange in my garden but that I could live with.
    Do you know what the plant is ?

    1. Thanks for your comment Sarah. It's amazing what flowers/plants look like when you zoom in. The orange really brings colour to the garden once most of the roses have gone. The plant is Crocosmia (just looked it up)! Polly x

  6. Both are beautiful photos, but the top picture is winning for me. As I'm sure you've been able to tell from my own photos, I love detail and close ups when it comes to nature photos, so naturally I would gravitate more towards the top one.

    I could just be mind blanking, but I feel like I've never seen this kind of flower before.
