Recently I showed you a macro view of a single red ranunculus (Persian buttercup) at my local botanical garden. Here’s more of an overall view to show you the color variety — and they were just barely getting started! (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/3.5, 1/500 sec., ISO 200, morning sun, handheld) Minimal post-processing in Topaz Adjust.

    So pretty, Celeste, and the background is equally as lovely and it all makes me feel as though I am visiting your local botanial garden myself….

  • Thank you, Katherine! This one is from 2 weeks ago, just as the ranunculus garden was starting to bloom. Unfortunately, I’ve now missed 2 Sundays and can only imagine how the garden is filling in. These grow in a raised bed, and I was sitting on the block wall that surrounds the bed – thus the relatively low angle that makes you feel you are really in the garden with the flowers.

    Oh, this is gorgeous, Celeste! Wonderful composition, lighting, and DoF, and of course that color is amazing!

  • Thank you, Anita! The intense color is one of the reasons I love ranunculuses so much! I also love the petal formations and many, many edges.
