Red Dahlia

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 27 August 2014 in Plant & Nature.

I visited Brookside Gardens recently and the dahlias were in bloom. The next few images were taken of the flowers there.

What a lovely statement shot this makes - the high contrast moment is a perfection.

Lovely image of a red dahlia ! The elegant retreating figure is well captured in nice light and colors. It really stands out against the background. I like to see beautiful flowers. A botanical garden in my city is one of my favorite places. Flowers makes me feel relaxed. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures following this.
Have a wonderful day, Elaine. :)

@Etsu: Brookside Gardens is also a botanical garden. It is a great place to escape to. The flowers are always so pretty!

Beau contre jour et belle composition sur un fond sombre qui fait ressortir la fleur !

Beautiful backlight and beautiful composition on a dark background that brings out the flower!
