Spring sure has sprung around here. When the Purple Iris show up, tucked away behind the foliage at the end of our driveway, I know it has officially arrived. These guys are spectacular. So…well…flowery. I mean, they have a delicate yet powerful quality to them that makes them special. This image was taken with my Fuji XT-1 and the 56mm f1.2. That lens totally rocks. I love the bokeh it produces and the narrow depth of field is a lot of fun to play with. Just in case you have never heard of “bokeh” before, it means…the visual quality of the out-of-focus area of a photographic image.
