Purple Blooms

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.

What do you think of the final presentation shot?

Orchids are flowers that are very commonly found in Singapore.  In fact our national flower is the Vanda Miss Joaquim ( a purple orchid).
