Hydrangea in Autumn

Hydrangea in Autumn

Hydrangeas are beautiful all year round. They charm with colourful big heads of flowers, and later the faded skeletons of the flowers are still a feast of patterns and textures.

Around our area, hydrangeas are popular as garden plants, but there are also a good number of “garden escapees” along roadsides.

    This is really a fantastic photo. At first it looks like snow, but then it becomes that delicate decomposition of the hydrangea flowers. It has great movement.
    As a gardener who grows this flower, I can say I’ve never thought to photograph it in Autumn. Cool!
    Happy B&W

    I often photograph these in my garden as the season fades but have not done them in B&W. These look great.
