I have decided to join the blogging craze. I am looking forward to taking a moment to find out a little more about the plants I have been photographing. I hope to explore all aspects of plants, flowers, trees and other garden related topics. Sorry about having to watermark the photos but there are a lot of people using them without permission.

Plumeria 'Maui Beauty'
Plumeria rubra 'Maui Beauty'
The aptly named ‘Maui Beauty’ from the Plumeria Grove at the Koko Crater Botanical Gardens on Oahu. Many of the Plumeria trees were dormant but there were a few that had some blooms.
We are off to the airport to catch a flight to The Valley Isle (Maui) so I thought this flower’s name was appropriate.

That's gorgeous! Have you taken the color out of the background via digital editing, or was it a happy accident (and a good eye) in terms of siting of this particular bloom?
(Sorry if I sound like a photography novice above... it's only because I am! :)
Kind of a lucky shot to get the background like that. It was late afternoon so the light was right. I didn't do much editing except boost the contrast a little.
Gorgeous shot - the scent of this flower is heavenly.
