A quick walk around the botanical gardens yesterday morning in the early light yielded these below.

The original stained glass. These are lovely. Is that last one a poinsettia?

It's a Redis Leavis Hugous I think :shrug: :headslap:


Ok ... I ran and asked my wife and she says "Yes ... it's a Poinsettia" ;)

What a wonderful set, MA. :clap::clap: I really like how you themed them by having them all backlit. Did you challenge yourself that day or did you just end up with a bunch like this in the set?

Thanks all :)

Iggy ... I've been to the botanical gardens before on a nice overcast spring day and took loads of shots in great light with little shadow.

So this day I decided that I would mostly look for backlit opportunities so it was quite purposeful. I did get flowers not backlit as well so I'll show them when I can.

Also was standing under a large python when I took that 1st shot in this set and didn't know it until Leanne pointed it out to me. He was close enough that I had to back away to get my lens to focus :)

I love backlighting also MA. Especially when presented so beautifully, as you have just done with this set.

Nice set for sure, I'm inspired to have ago at some back-lighting next time I out (at the right time of day with a camera).

I would go with 2 and 4.
