Blue Flowers

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge prompt: Flowers: Blue or Purple.

I thought of two blue flowers that I find visually interesting, Borage and Chicory.

Flora and Fauna Friday: Borage flower and buds

A Borage flower in a garden in Nantwich, Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s. Photographed with a 300mm telephoto lens to isolate the flower and buds from the surrounding plants.

Chicory flower

A Chicory flower photographed on the side of a road on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

I like the delicate blues in the flower but I found the greens in the background overpowered the blues. So I desaturated the background until it was close to how I remembered the flower appearing when I took the photo.

Chicory.
