This was one of the single most difficult subjects to photograph.I have never seen an artichoke blooming,it is quite spectacular.Apparently they dry nicely.

back for another look at this, Claudia. It's fascinating. Still haven't seen one in real life.

very nice. a cyberpal in Utah sent a photo of one of these awhile back, - which was the first time I'd ever seen one also. Have never seen one in real life tho' - but would like to. Puts me inmind of the passion vine flowers somewhat.

Thanks Alan,I was thinking after looking at them that something "dead"black in the background might have made this "pop"better.

WOW! Great photo with wonderful colors. You did a excellent job photographing the artichoke with the light background. I also have never seen a artichoke bloom. Thanks for sharing this nice photo.
