Ah, that September light…

15 09 2010

Every fall, I am sadly aware that there will be less and less flowers blooming for me to capture (and in case you hadn’t noticed, it is a passion for me), but the light is always exquisite when I do find a subject to immortalize in pixels. I was drawn to this Mallow flower mostly because of the light behind it, which with a large aperture, morphed into this dreamy soft background with lovely bursts of chartreuse and the rusty browns that fall brings. I’m sure this flower is in the Mallow/Hibiscus family; I just don’t know what variety it is. The flowers are considerably smaller than a “standard” hibiscus, if that helps. Anyone?

Except for the color, it looks like a white hibiscus that we have in Houston. Here, September’s light still looks like August.

I like this one very much. It has a ‘3D’ look. Perhaps it’s the contrast between the sharp blue flower and the yellow-green bokeh. Beautiful.
