A Floral Surprise

It wasn’t just that these flowers were so pretty:

ISO 25 4.15mm f/2.2 1/400sec

It was that they were on the grounds of St. Paul’s Catacombs in Malta that made them a bit of a surprise. This photo was shot with my iPhone and has had very little editing.

Here is the Instagram version:

  1. For what little it is worth, oleander is what I thought of also.  The leaves look right, and I saw oleanders long ago in Italy (and in displays of Mediterranean plants at The Cloisters in NYC).  Yes, the pretty flowers sing w/o much editing.  Nice shot!
