I’ve never seen a hibiscus like this before! I shot it at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge, MA in August but it didn’t have a tag.I love the two-part flower and the way the primary petals are spread almost like wings.

I spent a lot of time playing with textures to get the feeling I wanted, and the result uses textures from French Kiss, Flypaper Textures, and Kim Klassen at various opacities and blend modes. Oh, the fun of the late fall/winter processing season!
