Hello everyone 🙂 It has been overcast, windy and drizzly for what seems an age and so I seem to be in macro mode at the moment. This is an unusual Chrysanthemum flower from a local florist. It has bi-coloured petals (a dark cream and light burgundy colour), light on one side and dark on the other, with a wonderful texture and a beautiful whorl at the centre.

Lovely detail. Nicely done in B/W.
Thank you – one of those subjects you know straight away it has to b&w
A whirl of Ivory tusks. Beautiful image.
Thanks Steve 🙂

Thanks Julie – they do make wonderful subjects 😀
natural chaos captured in perfect style again, love it
Cheers Matty 🙂
fantastic, like a whirly toothed flower monster!! 😀
Thank you 😄 My husband said it reminded him of sharks teeth
Like the way your bnw shows up a textural pattern, how the petals will open in sequence to reveal the hidden heart.
Thank you. Yes, these petals are fascinating as they open up 🙂
Beautiful and intriguing image, and probably all the better for being in mono >>> and dear old Blighty is not faring much better with the weather – a long range forecast has us in for a wet “summer”!!! 😦
Sorry for the late reply, I’m glad you like the conversion in good old SEP2. I hope your summer improves, it’s starting to get cold here, I’m waiting for the frost and photos!! 🙂
Amazing macro photo, well done!
Apologies for my late reply – thank you very much my friend 🙂
This is pretty cool, I find it very calming for some reason. 🙂
Glad you like it 🙂
