Last year my son bought me a bouquet of flowers and in amongst this beautiful bunch of blooms was this chrysanthemum. What I loved about this flower was how the petals on their underlying edge were speckled and when they were fully opened there was no speckles just pure brilliant, vivid colour.
For this shot I used our macro lens and I love how it has captured such detail even though the ISO was high.
On Sunday I reached the age where in 4 years time, if the Government had not made us all work longer and harder, I would be sixty and celebrating a milestone, however this was not the year for such jubilations… My son as part of his birthday present to me bought me a bouquet of flowers here is some shots of those flowers.
