Hibiscus and backlighting
One of my favourite flowers is the hibiscus - so many beautiful varieties, singles, doubles, the colours! So I've started a project of photographing all the glories of this delightful flower. Yesterday evening I walked my local area where many hibiscus are in full flower, though many seem to be past their best - it's been so hot and dry, I know they like sun but they also like lots of water. The photo I am posting today is one that I took backlit by the sun, because I could see the veins in the petals this way.
Technical details: Aperture Priority, F2.8, shutter speed 1/2000, ISO 400, white balanace - daylight, AF auto focus.
