Sheer Elegance ~ This Iris by SummerJade


Small (23.2" x 15.5")

Available to buy on…

Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in Kentucky (USA) has fabulous irises! In fact they have so many, it’s difficult to isolate one from the group. I had to do a lot of erasing in Paint Shop Pro in order to remove the neighboring irises from this picture, but now the full beauty of this one comes shining through!

Season: May 6th, spring.
Canon EOS REBEL T1i, Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-55mm.
