I have always love taking pictures of flowers. It is one of my favourite subject. I love how the light bounces off the petals of the flower and make it look so “alive”. I didn’t manage to go to the Botanic garden or view any flower exhibitions during my last trip aboard. I did manage to view and capture some blooms when we visited the Hong Kong Wetland Park. It was the only place where I could get up and close with nature.
I spotted these light purple bloom among a bush during our walk around the park. The color really captured my attention and I stopped to take a closer look and to snap some pictures.
I didn’t have my regular DSLR with me as I only brought a point and shoot. As a result, I couldn’t really take the type of close up shot which I really wanted to. I had to be more creative in the type of shots I took with the camera. Out of all the flower shots I felt that this third picture was the most captivating one that I took of that purple flower.
