    I love the purple petunia (the 5th image). The lighting makes for such a stunning effect! ๐Ÿ˜Š

      Thanks. I admit to loving them too, there are 3 different colour variations on the one plant.

      Oh, just realised that you might have thought that the white spots are light effects, they are not, that is the actual flower.

    Oh wow, these pics are great! My iPhone 5S doesn’t get this quality of close up shots. How are distance pics with your new phone?

      Haven’t really tried any of them yet. May put that on my to do list for this weekend. Will post some if they are good.

    These are all lovely, but I agree with Quirky Girl that the 5th image is stunning. It could easily work on the cover of a science fiction novel…

      The plant variation is called “starry Night”. I like the streakier version a little more, but on the whole bush it looks very striking to see them all together. Going to write some SciFi then Brian?

      Yes, that was a nice coincidence. Not actually good technique, but I loved it.

      I bought a ZTE Axon 7, Hugh. I bought it because I needed a dual sim phone, but the bonus is that it has a 20mp front camera (and a lovely slow-mo effect that I have been playing with in the video capture).

    Lovely photos! Camera phones have come such a long way, but of course the photographer is the most important part of the equation. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lovely photos from your phone, Claudette. That peony is stunning. It’s good to know that the phone is capable of good quality images, as we don’t always have a camera with us, but we can still take photos of things that grab our attention on the spur of the moment.

      ou mean the red flower Ruth? That is actually a rose – Red Climbing Pierre Ronsard, always very dense flowerheads that last many weeks open. Sadly it is prone to rotting in the buds, but as it is so prolific flowering it really doesn’t matter to loose some.

        Petunia ??? the starry night one! Interesting about the rose though.

          Ah, yes, that is a glorious plant. (I did wonder if that’s what you meant, but then the rose struck me as looking like a Peony when I looked at it again) ๐Ÿ™‚

    The 5th image is stunning! And I love the reflection of the sunlight on the last picture.

      Yes, that Petunia is the clear winner. I hope t’s not reading my blog – it will get a swollen ego. ๐Ÿ™‚
