Floral Exotica

So, it’s not like I didn’t get to see any flora when I was at the VOF in June this year. I did. Just don’t ask me what it’s called! You should also know, being wildflowers, they (mostly) come in two dainty sizes: tiny and small; none of those prize-winners-in-waiting that adorn your pots and proudly-crafted gardens. Often, images can be a tad misleading as they are shot in macro mode even though the first picture in this post is of a type that is organically large. See for yourself.

  • Wow….some of the best photos of flowers that I have seen….Chat

  • You are taking your photography pretty seriously and now your camera-work fully complements your writing. Good going! Enjoyed seeing the pics πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Rajnish. I’ll have you know I have some pretty serious critics on that front πŸ˜‰
      Have learned to optimise my existing camera; want to upgrade but am paranoid about having to lug around that extra/heavy/precious piece on my travels. Any light-weight/easy-to-pack suggestions ?

      • I’m not well updated about new camera launches Puneet. But I believe that the Sony NEX series may serve your requirements well. It is designed like an SLR, but is much smaller and lighter. Pretty much gives the same quality as SLRs. Performs exceedingly well in low light situations.

        I still prefer my SLR, but portability is indeed an issue.

  • breathtaking….beautiful these natural beauties.
