Up close to a lilac Bearded Iris flower - 20121009

I photographed this flower in the grounds of the Brassey of Canberra. I spoke to the gardener, and he is very proud and protective of the gardens - rightly so in my opinion. I thought that the bright sunlight would make it difficult to get good photos, but the light filtering through the standards and falls gives this shot a nice glow.


Barton, ACT, Australia.
