Well not best and sharpest shot of these flowers,but still worth sharing.

The SE wind was blowing bad on top of Table Mountain. So flowers was moving all over the view. The colours amazed me and I took the shot hoping I will get some clarity. well...this is what i got.

Areas on the Cape Peninsula, and about 70,000 sq km (about 27,500 sq mi) of southern Western Cape Province, contain the distinctive fynbos biome, an ecological community. Although relatively small in area, this region constitutes one of the six recognized floral kingdoms of the world. It includes 8,500 plant species, of which more than 6,000 are indigenous.

Hi Bernard, You've already said about the sharpness so I won't comment on that. I do like the feel of the shot. The colour is great against the background and the composition is good too. Well done.

Yes Bernard, very soft focus on this one. Maybe the wind? I think the 1/100 may not be enough for the wind. What lens do you use?

I am glad thet you shared this. I love these flowers and cant have enough of them. As you said the image is not tac sharp, but taking shots with the wind is never easy.

Thanks for posting

It would have been a nice prespective of this flower, but you have already said, the sharpness kills it. It is nice to see flowers from SA though. Thanks for sharing, I will be waiting for the sharp one :D

Nice captuire Bernard, like you said not the sharpest but still an interesting post. Well done. Your picture inspired me to do a workshop. Let me know what you think

It could have been a great post with a good focus, great colours.
