Iris

On the way home last night after walking Bonnie, I noticed some beautiful Irises in a garden just yards away from the house.  I couldn’t resist reeling off a few snaps and these are the results…

For the last couple of shots I decided to use the flash to heighten the colours of the Iris and darken the background.

  1. These are one of my favourite flowers – probably because they also grow wild in Scotland! What a world of colour in each petal – glorious.
