A coneflower in Scotland today

Newer Older

Had a wander around the botanic gardens in Edinburgh today. Been a while since I went down there and it's all change. Autumn has firmly arrived in Scotland, in fact I think we skipped Summer althogether and went straight to Autumn. Anyway, there's a huge patch of Echineda there, down by the big pond, and since its the unofficial official flower of Flickr that's handy for me at least. Only got half an hour there, too much to do this weekend but got a nice couple of hundred shots to see me though the long winter nights!

Very little done to this.Thanks must go to Tracey and the I brake for bokeh presets for this one, it's been Raceytayed and I recommend you try it too.

See it big on black

    Just got a new DSLR and I'd love to achieve this standard. Bit confused as to these presets though, there are so many of them. Excellent work.

    That soft pink is divine. I'm saving flower shots for the dark days of winter too. Good idea.
