Macro Photography : Aquilegia vulgaris

Columbine 'by Matisse'

Having found this Aquilegia vulgaris (Columbine) in a wild part of a garden meadow just outside of Delft, I intuitively decided to go for an experiment. Selecting a large aperture I turned the lens slightly out of focus. This resulted in a Matisse like image with big, slightly blurry spots of color. Instead of a sharp and defined image, we now look at an artistic interpretation of the beautiful forms and colors within this composition.
