blushing bride protea by nadine henley

Currently unavailable for purchase

this wonderfully delicate flower only appears for one week in July here in Perth, WA and I almost missed them this year – got the last bunch at my favorite florists (the only place I’ve ever seen them). And then was too ill to photograph them right away. i managed to capture this in late afternoon light before they faded altogether.

SOLD A CARD (thanks Alex!)


Nikon D700, 105mm macro lens, ISO800, f/7.1, 1/100 sec, +.7 step. Cropped in PS and pastel filter added in Nik Color Efex pro


delicate, feathers, petals, pink, protea, western australia

. Feeling satisfied with a new photograph … that makes it a good day.
