Macro Monday - Frangipani Flowers

This picture was taken on Magnetic Island – which for those of you not completely familiar with the geography of Australia, it’s about ¾ of the way up the east coast, in Queensland.
The light that day was strangely flat, with spots and specks of rain. I actually think that this made photographing the white flower easier. Frangipani flowers on the bare branches of the tree – it makes a strange sight.





You can find more macro shots here at Macro Monday.



Enjoy the close ups!

Hi Stewart we call this in the Philippines "kalachuchi" and every summer this flower blooms and so we make it as garlands. ^_^

Beautiful! It's such a delicate little flower, and I love the rich yellow in the center.

Exquisite! So clean and pure. I love the two stages in the same picture, one flower half open and one fully open.

I think you are right, sunshine should not have been good for this one. Flowers like that is a challenge to get right but this loosk good.

Lovely macro. It is not easy shooting white flowers, but you've done a great job here.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I have enjoyed looking at your photos. This flower is so delicate and I am fascinated by the way the petals are fanned together. Beautiful.
