This is a Camano Stripe Dahlia that I shot at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge, MA last month. I was there again a few days ago and these beauties are still blooming!

I did a few basic adjustments, but that’s all she needed!

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.

    Sometimes the flower can speak for herself quite well, and that’s certainly the case here. It’s a gorgeous dahlia in both form and color, and your angle is just right.

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments and the fave, Celeste! I know you love dahlias, as I do, but I’ve never photographed one quite like this. I’ll definitely be planting some dahlias in our yard next year!
