40/100 - Mottled Tulip

40/100 - Mottled Tulip
I'm getting quite a way behind with posting my 100x project images, so have decided to take you back to springtime and upload three at a time!

This is shot number forty for my project - where my x is flora on black!

I was lucky enough to have several varieties of tulip to shoot for the project, and this unusually coloured one was one of my favourites! :)

If you want to join in with the 100x project, take a look at the 100x: 2014 group!

The only rules are that you shoot 100 images of an x of your choosing, and that all of the images must be taken in 2014!

Go on, give it a go, it's still not too late to start - and you know you want to! :)

Great capture! The curved stem and the way the petals wrap around each other are very sensual.

Excellent....beautifu colour, light and detail. And the softly curved green stem complements the flower so well (love green and purple together)

Nice curve in the stem. Lovely translucent quality in the petals - almost like crepe paper.
