“Rhodys on rooftops” – Portland, OR – Spring 2012



This shot was taken with the Nikon L16 – f4.7, 1/250 sec, ISO-282, 51mm fl.  There was no post-exposure manipulation done to this image

Taken in downtown Portland, the remains of a late afternoon shower are still evident on the petals of this violet star rhododendron.  Notice the pink stamen in the center of the blossom… the perfect silver star at its tip.  I have shot a lot of rhodys and I think this is the very first time I have captured a star stamen!
