The flowers

Flowers have always been a source of joy for me. Their delicate petals, intense colours and seasonal appearances never fail to brighten up my day.

Photographing flowers naturally goes hand-in-hand with macro photography, which is what I specialise is.

As I spend more time practicing my craft I am also trying to find out more about what I am photographing. So far I have come across such delights as bleeding heart, love-in-a-mist and rockfoil, my fellow Instagrammers sometimes helping to identify what the flowers are.
