Ethereal Beauty

Kerryn Madsen-Pietsch

Innisfail, Australia

Artist's Description

It’s Zygocactus annual flowering time again. The cool southerly winter winds created some difficulty while attempting to photo up close this hanging little beauty.
It was highlighted with sunspots from the afternoon sunlight creating some lovely effects.
Taken at home near Innisfail, in tropical Far North Queensland, Australia!

Common name: Zygocactus, Christmas cactus, and Crab’s claw cactus
Botanic name: Schlumbergera truncata Hybrids

Camera/Shoot Details
Handheld Pentax K10D, Prime Lens smc Pentax 55mm F1.2

(This was taken with my very first SLR Lens which I recently rediscovered that I still had. It came with my first ever SLR, a Pentax K1000 also in good working order but ‘neglected’ in use since purchasing a DSLR.)
