Pinapple Guava Blossoms

    Newer Older

    Years ago I saw an article in the Los Angeles Times that said that, in Southern California, pineapple guava was one of the most rewarding plants you could put in your garden. So I put in a twenty foot long hedge which is now about nine feet tall. Every fall it produces wonderful tasting fruit, which we really enjoy. It's also fairly drought tolerant and has a beautiful grayish green color when it's not covered with blossoms. My wife picked these blossoms this morning.

    Strobist info: Lit with an SB600 and an SB700 in softboxes on either side of the blossoms for even light. Triggered by the pop up flash on my D90 in commander mode.

    Other plants and flowers that I've photographed using strobes can be seen in my Strobe Lit Plant set. In the description, I list resources that I've used to learn how to light with off camera flash.
