Gladioli

 The light falling on these purple and yellow gladioli caught my eye.

Red and Yellow Gladioli

They were just in a vase in my lounge. The way the sunlight picked out the yellow ones in particular was spectacular. The effect cannot quite be captured in a photo because of the reduced contrast range but the result is not a complete failure.

One response to “Gladioli

  1. I showed this to my wife. Her response was to ask why I had taken a photo of some dead flowers. I should have expected that.

    The Glads are a little ragged at the edges but certainly not dead, most of them. Maybe it is possible to take an OK photo of flowers that are past their best if the lighting is conducive.
