Image of the Month - MAY 2012

Robert geranium, Assentoft, Denmark

One afternoon I was walking in a forest near my home, I was on the lookout for flowers and as planned I found one of my favourite flowers the Robert geranium - a small but very photogenic flower. I have always been fascinated by photographing plants and flowers and using macro lenses opened a whole new world of opportunities, when I started making images of plants, more than 15 years back. I like to use large apertures to soften the surroundings and isolate the main subject, making an artistic feel and creating an image with "flower-power" as I like to call it. I never get tired of looking at images like this, they inspire me to make new ones!.
