I’ve been taking more and more black and white photos lately, and this one comes from my own backyard. I’ve been wanting to shoot this huge flower against my back fence for weeks before it goes away, as it does every year.
After I shot it, it didn’t convey my original feeling of awe, so I converted it to black and white during post-processing. I feel it has the sense I originally had now.
Can you tell what color the flower was?

I’m a sucker for sunlight and the many ways it can be altered through its interaction with the landscape; here we have the sun setting near Phillippi Estate in South Sarasota, giving my camera lens its last bit of color and glare before it dips below the treeline.
