It’s April and time for a new theme at Jude’s garden photography challenge. This month she is challenging us to get closer to your subject.
As Gilly (Lucid Gypsy) has nominated me to take part in the “7 day nature photo” challenge I will combine them with these photos.
Today I nominate DJ (musings of a frequently flying scientist) to join in. DJ is a fanatical photographer and has an artists eye for composition and a scientists flair for presentation. Hope you can find the time in your busy life DJ.
Today I visited the Roma Street Parklands. An oasis in the centre of the hustle and bustle of Brisbane. It is one of the worlds largest subtropical gardens in a city centre. I spent 3 hours immersed in the beauty of these magnificent gardens and I will be showing more of the photos I took as the week goes by.
These vibrant red ginger were tucked away under the foliage and it was the bright red that caught my eye and I had to duck down to get a photo. It was then I noticed the tiny, true flower just peeping out from the whorls of the stem (not sure of the terminology here). So then I tried to take a close-up.
I do not have a DSLR or a macro lens so I got as close as my camera would focus, then did some cropping. Interesting theme from Jude this week as it makes me look closer and study things around me. Jude has a pin sharp bee to show us this week.
Fantastic images. Amazing ginger stalks.
