Dramatic blossom after the rain by Celeste Mookherjee

Dramatic blossom after the rain by 

A dramatic ranunculus at my local botanic garden. Overnight rain added a bit of sparkle, but the star of this show is the dark and intricately detailed flower center.

    Congratulations on your feature and so well deserved. You are so correct when you say the star of this image is the intricate and dark center and just look at the detail and texture you have captured – that is really excellent photography as the dark areas are often so difficult to capture the detail in…. I like the contrast with the bright and vivid petals too…

    I’m glad Maggie found you… I knew she would be surprised and pleased..

  • Thank you! I’ve been having fun with all the ranunculus blooms currently in season. Actually, I found Maggie, and it was thanks to your mention of her. :)

    pretty and unique center

  • Somehow I missed your kind comment until now. Thank you! I also love the centers of ranunculus flowers, like little domed hats!
