Belton House - Part 2 3/5

I believe these are Arum Lillies but am prepared to be corrected if I am wrong. 

 

As you can see it was fairly dark inside the Orangery so I felt this was quite reasonable for a hand held shot.

Arum Lillies indeed: a traditional flower of death
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are Chris but no less the attractive for that.

Just keep that pollen away from clothes, curtains etc.
Brian Walbey: Couldn't agree more Chad.

In Holland this is also considered the flower of death.
It is a beautiful flower though.
Wonderful composition and DOF.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Astrid.

That's what they are called here.
My Nana had them outside her kitchen window and always threw the cold tea and tea leaves on them. They loved it and were always huge.
Beautifully captured.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Aussie.

Not bad at all Brian, these are great shapes and make nice change from a lot of the more usual flower types.

Nicely done, Brian. No sign of any burnout on the whites.
Brian Walbey: I didn't use the flash Alan so that helped with a lack of burn out I suppose.
