One of the hardest plants I’ve shot so far is the Flame vine, known to me as Bignonia since this evening, when my expert grandfather finally provided a name. Astra, this is the orange flower you liked, whose name I promised to find out.
It’s hard to shoot because for some reason my camera has issues with anything red and renders it orange. Flame vine flowers (at least mine) are red, not orange, but they only show red if I shoot them in the shade. I’ve been asking for a cloudy day for about a week, without much luck. I could only successfully shoot a few clusters that grew in the shade of other plants.
Flame vine leaves, on the other hand, are amazing. They grow in mesmerizing patterns, have the loveliest colors, and apparently grow all year long, because they are sprouting now, at the beginning of autumn.
I got a little carried away and took a gazillion pictures. This is part number one, and tomorrow I’ll post the other half.
