Zantedeschia aethiopica

Zantedeschia aethiopica I went to a nursery yesterday to buy some vegetable starts (cabbage, brussel sprouts, onions, asparagus, etc). Decided to pack my camera along. Still a lot of empty space there but what was on display was very colorful. Should have thought of this days ago instead of cursing the rain and cold. It still hasn't been above 50 degrees this spring and the State just extended the deadline for removing studded tires.

I couldn’t think of a catchy caption for this beauty so I thought it’s scientific name sounded pretty exotic.

In February and March, when I get tired of waiting for Spring, I go to a plant nursery to photograph some color. I  went to one recently to buy some vegetable starts (cabbage, brussel sprouts, onions, asparagus, etc). Decided to pack my camera along. Still a lot of empty space there but what was on display was very colorful.

Normally I shoot off a tripod when there but as this day was an after thought, I had to shoot handheld. Fortunately the light through the translucent roof was good.

This isn’t SOOC but I did very little processing overall and none at all to the colors.

  1. These colors are stunning John – they look like they were painted in oil. Considering it was hand held in available light and with little or not PP, it’s just fantastic.
