Rhododendrons – Milwaukie, Oregon – Spring 2012
I shot this with the Nikon L16 – f4.7, 1/337 sec, ISO-64, 17mm fl. There was no pre- or post-exposure manipulation done to this image.
The bright afternoon sun lends a brilliance to the rhododendron’s white petals. This is one of my favorite pictures of the ‘rhodys’ at my friend Jenny’s. I love how the flowers’ stamen are turned up to the sun, drawing warmth and life from the big yellow orb’s rays.
