From the archives 18th March, 2011
As I was looking through the images on the old USB stick I found the other week, I found so many old flower photos I couldn’t remember taking and this was one of them.
I’d never heard of the common name Windflower before. I’d only ever used the name Anemone or Japanese Anemone.
They’re such a delicate flower and wave about wildly in the wind – hence the common name I guess. With the Royal Botanic Gardens being the windy location where I took this photo, I’m surprised I actually got it in focus. Then I noticed the image was made with my little old Canon A3000 IS Point & Shoot – the first camera I bought after I had to take early retirement in 2010. I might have had it on the Auto setting.
Nothing like a little Point & Shoot to start you off in Flower Photography. They’re so easy to use.
