07/14/10 - Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus)
This is the one plant I bought at Plant Delights Nursery this past weekend. Here's a link to their catalog entry for it:
This is SOOC. Since it is not in the ground yet, I carried the pot around the yard to several spots trying to get just the right background. It was cloudy yesterday, and I had to work to get enough light for good focus without breaking out the tripod.
I had originally taken this shot this past weekend:
and totally messed up the focus:-( So, I had to go back to buy it to try again at home but then of course it was open more by then. I've done some interesting pp variations on that one, so if you see one you like in that gallery, let me know.
I also searched on Smug yesterday for other Lily of the Nile shots, picked a favorite from the 90 or so thumbs, and it was Karina's:-) Sometimes I like to see what others have done with the same subject.
Glad you all enjoyed the Barrel Monster shot from yesterday. Thanks for your comments.
