These bougainvillea were all over the grounds of our hotel and I loved it! Their delicate beauty and color was in sharp contrast to all of the brown and not very vivid green which is naturally Arizona after the spring blooming season. I wish I had taken a bloom or two back home to press in a book to keep. All images were taken at a wide aperture (F2.0/2.8) so that I could have that wonderful bokeh behind the flowers.
My favorite image is the second one because of its bokeh, what say you?
I like the second one also — for the perspective. But the third is interesting with the fence/grate in front of the flowers, too!
Thank you. The last one was taken through the railings of the second floor of the hotel looking out on the parking lot.
These shots are gorgeous. I love bougainvillea! It’s so lovely! –Lisa
