This is an image of a tiger lily I photographed back in June of this year, from my mom's garden. I adjusted the colours and contrast somewhat, but did no cropping or anything else.
Lillies are one of my favourite flowers; the others are roses, calla lillies, carnations and dahlias - though to be honest, I do like all flowers.
I love the bright orange colours of these flowers. I don't know if orange is hard to capture the way red is or not, but I like they way it shows on this picture. I took this after a rain, and you can see some raindrops on some of the petals.
Sadly, as fall advances here, the flowers are starting to die down. There have been a few more days of overnight frost, which is definitely not good for them. These tiger lillies come back every year though, and I look forward to seeing them year after year. A lot of the flowers my mom has in her gardens come up every year, but there are some she has to plant every spring. I don't know if I'll ever get the gardening green thumb like her, but I suppose some day if I want to take photos of flowers, it might be handy to have some of my own - though I'd need a house with a yard first off...
