Some flower elements

For my ‘imaginaries’ I use ‘elements’ of different pictures. Here are some flower elements assembled in one image. All flowers are from our own garden.

After the rain

Some of the best garden pictures are made just after a rain shower. This certainly applies for flowers. The rain seems to contribute to the brightness of the colors. But this also depends on time and the angle towards to light source (sun). Etc. etc. These two images were shot at around 9 AM and …

Dutch say it with flowers; especially with such a garden in South Africa

Some Succulent Plants and Flowers

All shot in our little garden. Today as is and tomorrow some photoshopped cross breeds.

African Renaissance
