Any excuse! is the name of this great product from Australia I received during the Christmas holidays that Oprah has been raving about. It’s basically edible wild hibiscus flowers conserved in syrup that you can serve as a garnish in champagne or sparkling wine. Next time you have champagne, make sure you drop one of these in!
The objective of this photo is to capture the details on the individual style branches of the hibiscus flower. I shot this photo this morning at sunrise on my terrasse and used the reflection of the building to minimize flare from the light. I set the focus at the lowest possible on my camera to blur out the building.
Settings: Canon EOS 40D, Macro lens, 1/200 s, f/2.8, ISO: 320. Tripod.
