My neighbor told me about his artichoke that was about to bloom and wanted me to capture its beauty. Using a ladder, macro lens and nature’s sunlight, I attempted to do so.

Canon 5D M III, Canon 100 M lens

Lightroom – cropped, adjusted exposure, did not touch colors.

Beautiful, Donna. Thank you!
