Solstice time –
unravel your gray self
in the sun.
These were taken Saturday, 6/19/16 at the Center for Urban Horticulture’s Soest Garden in Seattle. The lovely white flowers are tall (over my head) Matilija poppies (Romneya coulteri). They’re being blown about in the sun after last night’s downpours.
Three years ago I saw these beauties for the first time, and photographed fresher specimens, here.
The ground was littered with petals today.
The grass is a tall ornamental whose name I don’t know. It sparkles and twinkles with every passing breeze.
Olympus OM D-1 with Oly Zuiko 60mm macro lens. The grass photos are mostly f 3.5, 1/2500s. The flowers are mostly f3.5 – f.5, 1/500 – 1/2500s. Some are processed in Lightroom, some with Color Efex or Silver Efex.
HAPPY SOLSTICE TO YOU!
