The first bloom on my Cistus monspeliensis bush. There are lots of buds all around it and any day now it will look a picture. Cistus (from the Greek “Kistos”) is a genus of flowering plants in the rockrose family Cistaceae and is commonly found as a garden flower. This one is in my garden in Devon, England.

Camera used: Pentax K30

I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.
