[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Urn Plant (Aechmea fasciata) is a epithyte bromeliad from Brazil that is well known as a house plant. The bloom has violet and red flowers, surrounded by stiff sharp pink bracts. It lasts for weeks, then dries off, losing its colours. The plant then dies but usually a pup or two have grown at the base to replace it for the next season.
As there is nothing much else in bloom at the moment, I took the time to photograph this specimen in my patio using different focus points. Then I focus-stacked four photos to increase the depth of field.
