This tulip was well past its prime when I decided to put it in a block of ice.
Recently I have seen a number of great photographers who are doing incredible work
with flowers that are well past their peak. Considering that freezing the flower
is not a pristine way to display the beauty of mother nature, why worry
about obtaining pristine specimens.
While I enjoy this type of photography I admit I do it too few times a year.
I usually think about it in the spring, but for some reason I don’t in the summer
or fall. I need to work on that!
