Helleborus Niger "HGC Josef Lemper"

Comments

Just beautiful. What size lens and kind of lighting do you use. I just posted my orchids and can get nowhere near this beauty and quality. I really admire your work.

Gorgeous - somehow captures a hellebore perfectly and yet also looks ethereal, almost other worldly, like a flower I've never seen before...
I always recommend 'Josef Lemper' to my customers because here in PA (USA) it starts blooming in November unlike regular Christmas roses that start in March. I like 'Jacob' even better because it starts in October and the plant is more compact. Great photo.
Stunning! The crisp white and yellow are sublime!
Dear Lula, what sort of magic camera do you have? It is marvellous.
Have a great day

Thanks, I must say I really enjoyed the shooting sessions with this helleborus and somehow it has reflected in the pictures.

Carolyn, This is my second year portraying helleborus, I think I am getting into the flower and I would like to explore others. I will use your suggestion for the "Jacob". Thanks, Lula

Gabriel, thank you! That is very sweet of you to say. Lula
I like the way this picture really gives us an essence of hellebore.

What a great capture! Beautiful huge blossom of Hellebore. They smell so good. I have them in my garden for so many years. Every garden should have one.
