Red Valerian

October 23, 2005

The flower that I've always known as simply Valerian, but that my trusty dictionary assures me is Mediterranean Red Valerian (Centranthus ruber). Seen here, set against a bluish-black gravestone at the same cemetery as yesterday.

Details: Nikon 105mm 1:2.8 macro, ~f/2.8, 1/125s, ISO 200.

Note: I'm currently way behind on daily posting, having been away, and not in the posting 'mood', for a while. I'll be spending the next while catching up.
