Living Stone Succulent Flower

This picture appears to show a flower growing up through a split in a rock. Actually, it's all a succulent plant called the Living Stone or the Living Rock. The plant is very small and measures just two and one half inches (6.35 centimeters) across including the "stones".

 

I lit this very simply with one YN560-II in a softbox camera right, slightly above the plant, at 2 o'clock. The flash, in manual mode, was triggered by a Yongnuo RF-603N.

 

Other plants, flowers, fruit or thingys that I've photographed using strobes, can be seen in my Strobe Lit Plant set. In the description for that set, I list resources that I've used to learn how to light with off camera flash. www.flickr.com/photos/9422
