  1. The lavender color of these flowers is exquisite! I especially love the shadows thrown by the stamens of the flower on the left.

    • They are pleasant blossoms, aren’t they! The colors are as fragile as the petals. I know I’m not the only one who had trouble with that color because when I tried to ID the plant, I looked at many photos where the photographer didn’t get the color quite right.

  2. I really love the way you capture color, montucky. If I had to describe your photos in one word (and that wouldn’t be fair!), it would be “vibrant”. Nicely captured.

  3. You captured all the variations of blue/purple in these beauties. Very nice.
