Evening Jaunts

Same colchicum flowers again but later in the evening this time.  We were walking here last night, sun had almost set and the field of blooms glowed in the end-of-day low light. The lovely glow didn’t come out in the photos so I’ve done my best to compensate, playing around with brightness/contrast and bumping up the saturation more than I usually do.

I think I’ve achieved an idea of the glow of the colchicum but had to settle for the trees and sky looking darker than they really were.

  1. I have only seen these flowers by themselves, never in such a large cluster. The effect is gorgeous, Liz. The fact that you get to see them at this time of year in the southern hemisphere is a good reminder of why they are called “Colchicum autumnale.”
