Black Star

Posted by
Philip (South Wales, United Kingdom) on 27 July 2010 in Plant & Nature.

After viewing Kate's lovely photos over the last few weeks I thought I would venture into my garden to take a photo. Black Star is a Calla Lily which lives in a pot on my patio.

NIKON D90 1/30 second F/4.5 ISO 200 105 mm

Any tips or constructive criticism are welcome.

My photos can also be found on FLICKR.
I appreciate all your comments, thank you so much. I do read all the comments and will try to answer any questions you have.

Do you feed it on Ribena rather than tomorite? Very odd colour for a lily!
