Whilst strolling around Wakehurst Place in West Sussex, back in 2015, we came across a beautiful lily. The Himalayan lily. What inspired me about this particular lily was the deep, intensive colour of the centre of the lily which consists of a deep maroon.
This was framed by delicate, soft white petals and green, upright sepals along the edge of each petal giving a really unique, beautiful flower.
If you’re ever visiting Wakehurst Place, be sure to check out one of these stunning lilies!
Below is another shot of the same lily photographed from a different angle.
For these photographs, I used my usual method of processing to bring in the softness. However, I created a radial gradient and instead of just using the clarity slider, I also played around with the haze slider to bring the colours out.
Below is a list of the entries for FF #84 Floral Friday Photography Challenge. Be sure to check the wonderful floral images for the challenge.
