Another flower that blooms in our garden in Spring is the Hyacinth. Every spring, there is the strong scent of this flower in my garden. And now that I have cut a stalk of this flower to photograph, the scent is definitely present in the house as well. I just haven’t quite decided whether I like the scent or not.
Anyway, I have photographed this flower in my indoor studio.
I have to say that this flower is not very easy to photograph in UV, as there are areas which are very reflective in an otherwise UV-dark flower – it is easy to have overblown areas in the flower. It is also not the most interesting flower in UV. But I’ve photographed it to include in my flower gallery.
