FOTD Delphinium

I planted a new delphinium in the back garden this spring and it has started blooming. I think it is stunning!

The photo below is inspired by Cee’s photo challenges. It is shot at f25. the one above is f5. and the top one f8. I wanted to get this ‘from above’ angle and still be able to see the detail of the blooming part of the delphinium. So Cee’s suggestion of playing with aperture worked well.

      It is such a saturated color and now,in our heatwave, the whole spike is blooming. I’m glad you like it Emma. Thanks for commenting.

    It looks awesome. I believe photographers like to play with aperture in good sunlight like this.
