Pink Bougainvillea, a Tropical Vine

My flower of the month has been messed up by the weather.

After a cold snap in November we had unseasonably warm December and January, and tons of flowers, even Daffodils, were in bloom.

I did what was essentially a depth-of-field post using two different point and shoots on Witch Hazel flowers. Then went off to Mexico for the second half of January where I took these shots of pink Bougainvillea.

Two days after we came home the temperatures dropped to -4°C and all the flowers are looking more-or-less dead. So I had nothing to try out depth of field on for Nancy’s challenge. So may I present the Bougainvillea.

Unlike the Witch Hazel flowers, these were not studies in depth of field. But they were, for the most part, taken with macro turned on, which is one of the only ways to get depth of field on a point and shoot camera.Bougainvillea, a Tropical Vine with Bright Pink Papery FlowersBougainvillea, a Tropical Vine with Bright Pink Papery FlowersBougainvillea, a Tropical Vine with Bright Pink Papery FlowersHot Pink Bougainvillea FlowerHot Pink Bougainvillea Flower
