photoblog image Belton House - Part 2 2/5

Belton House - Part 2 2/5

I haven't got any proper macro equipment for doing ultimate close-ups like the excellent ones Ray shows us so I just had to go with what I've got and four of my efforts are my images for the rest of the week, taken without flash in the Orangery at Belton House.

 

I haven't a clue what these delightful little flowers are, no doubt one of you will be able to identify them.

You don't need a macro lens to take excellent close-ups, Brian...this is a fine shot, and you are far enough back to show the foliage as well as the...umh...buds and blooms.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Ray, you are right of course, now what did you say the flowers were calledsmile
I don't know what they are, but I know I like your photo! And Ray is right, it's not the equipment you have, but what you do with it... er- you know what I mean! smile
Brian Walbey: Yes I know what you mean Elizabeth smile Thanks for liking my photo.

A very striking red but I'm afraid I cannot identify them Brian
Brian Walbey: I saw a picture of these flowers somewhere the other day but I can't remember where, my brains getting old and tired!
red and green are always good together
Brian Walbey: Yes they do go together very well don't they.
I have seen this plant before and can't for the life of me remember what it is called. Makes a nice picture though
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. I saw a picture of these the other day but can't remember where, old age creeping on.
This is a fine shot of what is obviously the pendulous thingymebob.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, you just beat me to the name smile)

Yes, a fine close- up! Yes, Ray is right, you don't need a macro lens to take a proper close-up. (It is amazing what the Nikon D 3000 I now try out can perform en detail! But photographing roses is a problem for me)- Oh, I would like to name this beautiful flower!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine.
Fine image with very good reds and greens
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.

I'm the last person who would know what these are, Brian. They are very striking against the green.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed they are Alan, thanks.

The plant could belong to the genus fuchsia- but there are more the 100 different sorts of fuchsia? Ray and Chris are the experts in flora & fauna!
Brian Walbey: Unfortunately neither ray or Chris know what it is either Philine.
Still good detail and lovely colours, but I have no idea on the name of the plant smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda.
Great greens and some good detail also Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
