Posts Tagged ‘elephant ear’

I love back lighting and I was really struck by the beauty of the light coming though the giant leaves of an Elephant Ear plant this past weekend, highlighting the details of the plant. The veins are very prominent and the colors and patterns are gorgeous.

This image is more abstract than my usual photos, but sometimes it’s nice to shoot something a little different.

I’m finally finishing up with the shots from my trip last weekend to see the orchid exhibition and thought I’d post a couple of abstract images.

The first shot is a close-up of an elephant ear plant. I like the way its veins pop out, like a bodybuilder with a heavy weight. The image is somewhat symmetrical, but the two sides are not mirror images.

The second shot is a close-up of an orchid. Is it just me, or does it look like the flower contains a pink Darth Vader helmet?
