Default Bougainvillea

This plant almost died planted in my front yard because of poor soil condition. It comes back to life after my wife dug it up and planted into a small pot. Now it blossoms and here is the pictures!

When you rescue a plant, it knows, and rewards you with beauty like this. Nice sharp, colorful pictures. If I may ask, which camera/lens combination did you use for these? They are very good.

Robert, thanks for the compliment! These pictures were taken with my my Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II on a T3i body.

Settings are : f/11, 1/200 sec, ISO 400 in manual mode, flash used with a Canon 430 EX II set to M 1/32 power, diffuser on.

Thanks. I have a 50 for my Sony, and an external flash. I will have to try that and see if I can get similar results.
