Anemone swirls by Celeste Mookherjee

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

I’ve been keeping an eye on a particular anemone plant during my weekly outings to my favorite botanical garden, waiting for a special flower to appear. Here it is, the anemone with swirling petals that remind me of a graceful dancer. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/50 sec., ISO 400)

    This almost looks like an amethyst blossom from inside a geode. Sorry about the rockhounding comparison. However, it does and this is well done.

  • No need to apologize. I can see what you mean. Thanks!
