|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Taken at Inverewe Gardens, near Ullapool, North West Scotland, at the weekend (in high winds!). I was trying to photograph some other specimen when I spotted this little beauty underplanting a giant rhododendron with leaves about 12" long.|
The garden was developed, I think, in the early 1900's, when visitors arrived by steam ship, and is now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. It is on the west coast, where the winds are (allegedly) warmed by the Gulf Stream, hence a garden in which tropical plants florish, even though it is geographically north of Moscow. It covers a large area, with lovely borders in the walled garden and gradually wilder areas of woodland, rhodos and the like. Gorgeous Eucalyptus trees. You have to travel past the very lovely Loch Maree to get there, an added bonus - sound like a travel brochure, don't I?
Shot at a high ISO and shutter speed due to the high winds. I had tried the tripod but it was too windy, so I used an improvised technique of swaying in time with the gusts of wind until the flower and the camera focus were in the same place.......

Beautiful picture and very pretty colours of the beautiful flower.
Beautiful shot of this delicate flower, Corinne.
The colours and details are excellent and very pleasing to the eye.
Hi Corinne...This is a good shot allowing the flower to dominate the top right but also giving access to it's leaves. The seperation between the heads and petals works well...in depth and colour. Best, Brat.
