Red Hot Poker

With an open topic from Cee for this week, I was naturally drawn to one of my favourite subjects, particularly as it’s not listed for the coming weeks.

This image is a detail from a photograph I took of a ‘Red Hot Poker’  (Kniphofia if you want to be properly botanical about it) that flowered last week.

Not that I’m a gardener by any means (that is Madame’s domain; I just cut the grass and do some of the heavy lifting) but macro photography is one of my particular interests and flowers are an inexhaustible source of subject matter

Just so you can see where it’s come from, here is the original image. Fun with Lightroom did the rest.
