Flower Photography

Red flowers from Sri Lanka

Flower photography is one of my hobbies.I love enjoying the beauty of flowers and at the same time I love to capture those in different angles.During past few years I captured beautiful flowers in different destinations,but most of my favourite captures are from Sri Lanka.There is a reason for that.Usually in Sri Lanka I get time to relax and enjoy time among the flowers and nature without much disturbance.This peaceful mind alows me to capture the beautiful moments and those make me happy throughout the year.These are such flower captures which I photographed during different holidays and thought of sharing a post featuring those in today’s post.

Gorgeous in Red – Flowers from Sri Lanka

These red roses are common in Sri Lanka and I captured these few years ago in a holiday in Sri Lanka.Check the given link for more beautiful views in different angles of the same flower.

This is another common red rose variety which you can find in Sri Lanka.It doesn’t have lot of flower petals.But,with bright red flowers,these red roses can make you smile any time! 🙂

This is one of my favourite flower captures from 2014 collection.I named this collection as smiling Zinnias.Have a look in to this post,smiling Zinnias from Sri Lanka for more photos.

Still I dont know the English name.However we called these flowers as  Ginikuuru mal in Sri Lanka.Aren’t they gorgeous?

Update : I found the name.These flowers are called as Red Cypress Vine.

Flame Violet flowers are so beautiful and can find in different colours.This red colour flowers are bright and hot!

Anthuriums! Aren’t they unique in the shape?These red anthuriums are common in Sri Lanka,however these flowers need attention and also some shade to grow beautifully.

Do you love to capture flowers?Above are DSLR photos,Phone captures and using my point & shoot.I use any camera I have,but DSLR camera always give the best captures.

 

Smiling Gandapana Flowers

Today I spent more time thinking what to post for Tuesday photo story post. I have lot of photos to share from my recent Sri Lanka holiday and recent Singapore visits. But, last week I had a break from blogging. I wrote some posts, but actually I had a break and spent on organizing my other stuffs and connecting with other bloggers. So, it is almost Tuesday, but I don’t have any post or any idea ready with me to share.

Smiling Gandapana Flowers

Do you know, Tuesday post is the favorite post of mine? I get the opportunity to talk with other like minded bloggers with this post. I receive many sweet comments for my posts and I really don’t like to miss the Tuesday post. So, finally I got an idea to write! It is again a poor flower capture of me.

Smiling Gandapana Flowers

Whenever I feel lazy to write a detailed Tuesday travelogue post, flower captures are there to help me to write a post. It happened today too.

These flowers are called as ‘Gandapana’ in Sri Lanka and considered as a wild plant /weed. But, there is another variety that can be seen in home gardens too. I captured these flowers from our home in Sri Lanka and this is not from the garden. It is a wild plant or unwanted for my parents. So, they should have removed the plant by now. But, the flowers are beautiful and I could capture few moments with the flowers.

Smiling Gandapana Flowers

In Sri Lanka we can see different varieties of ‘Gandapana flowers’ including different colors such as red and yellow other than this pink color flowers.

Lantana is the English word I found for these flowers.Do you have Lantana flowers in your country?If so,is it a weed or garden plant?

Also please join with the link up with your photo story this week.Leave me a comment,I would love to read those.

Flowers from Sri Lanka

This is another beautiful flower which we find commonly in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately I am not sure about its English name or botanical name. In Sri Lanka we call these flowers as ‘Gini Kuuru Mal’. Usually these are grown as small vines and we can see lot of tiny single flowers in the plant. Bright red colour is so attractive and these flowers can create any garden so beautiful.

I usually like to feature Sri Lanka flowers in this blog.Each of my holiday in Sri Lanka give me the opportunity capture lot of common Sri Lanka flowers,but some times it is difficult to find the English name or botanical name.

Nidikumba

It is another Friday. This week was so fast and I can’t believe that it is almost another weekend. In my recent Sri Lanka holiday, I captured some flowers and this week I am featuring Mimosa flowers. In Sri Lanka we call these plants as ‘Nidikumba’ and it is a sensitive wild plant. If you touch the leaves, the leaves will close.(sleep ) 🙂

Anyway, here are my Nidikumba flowers captures which I photographed in Sri Lanka. Actually I used iPhone camera for these photos. Though these are not as sharp as of a DSLR camera, seems phone camera is much better for me for macro captures. Simply I don’t have a lens for macro but I still like capturing macro shots.

Photo Friday

With my craziness on capturing flowers,I have lot of flower captures in my computer.Whenever,we visit a place,I like to take few flower photography if I see flowers.Simply,flowers are beautiful,colourful and they give their best capture for any beginner who loves to take flower photographs.

So,don’t look mad at me. 🙂 Most of the Photo Friday posts will be on my flower captures because I like to share a travel story on each Tuesday.Is it a less attention to Friday post?Sometimes I feel so.Because I spend more time thinking on the next travel story for Tuesday posts and most of the time,I write it before Tuesday.But,it seems I don’t pay much attention to Photo Friday post.

Anyway,I still assume that you all like to see my Flower captures.I want to share the most joyful moments which I spent with flowers with all of you.

So,here is another flower photo which I captured few weeks ago in Sri Lanka.These Pretty Blue Flowers are common in Sri Lanka and each time when I visit home,I have a capture! 🙂

Flowers from Sri Lanka

These are some flowers I found from Sri Lanka.As always I love flower photography,but this time I used my phone to capture these.When I downloaded the photos to the computer,not all photos are sharp or clear as I saw in the screen of the phone.It was a good experience and seems I need to learn more on capturing with a phone camera.

Flowers from Sri LankaI captured few photos in different angles.But,seems they are bit shaky.Please leave me your ideas as comments.
