Bokeh - the blurry way of photography

I is for Incredible Iris (+ 15 pictures in notes!)

I is for Incredible Iris (+ 15 pictures in notes!) 

15 more pictures above in notes!

Over the past year, I have accumulated a massive library of photography, as I created pictures every day for my 365 project. Almost without exception, I got several--if not dozens upon dozens--of images that I wanted badly to process and share, but could not due to time constrains. I hoped that at some point I could revisit some of these pictures and give some a moment to shine.

This beautiful iris was photographed at a friend's estate last May, where she and her husband have planted countless irises all over the many acres around their home. We were invited to spend the day taking pictures and I found myself overcome by the variety and stunning colors of the countless irises in bloom there. Today I will be sharing just this one spectacular blossom, but I've processed many others, which I'll upload at a later date. I'm so happy to showcase one of these flowers for my A-Z project!!

By the way, on that day, we arrived home very late, after a lovely dinner with them, and I had to process one of the very first pictures I took because I could not spend the time to look through the many hundreds of pictures I took that day! You will see that picture above in a note, as well as the other pictures I had time to process from my visit. I never even touched the iris pictures because there were far too many to look at and I wanted to take the time to look at them carefully. Enjoy the show! :)

Explored on April 11, 2014. Highest placement, #1.

Very beautiful Iris and a beautiful photo, too, Janet.

As to the Fairy Slippers, I hope you find some to photograph again this year. June is quite late except at higher elevations. They bloom here at lower elevations in April and May and into June at higher elevations. I know that they bloom in the Gorge around the end of April to the middle of May.

Such a delicate looking flower..............and you've captured it perfectly! I just love the light shining through the petals revealing the detail and gorgeous colours! The out of focus background is lovely! Stunning macro work Janet............and an excellent set of shots in the notes as well..............thanks for posting them. I can imagine how difficult it must be for you deciding which ones to share with us, especially if they're all the same quality as these!!
