Go anywhere in Switzerland and on balconies and in window boxes you will see Geraniums – red ones and pinks ones. The same is true of other European countries. Geraniums add a welcome splash of colour.
Currently we have a Geranium on the window cill in our kitchen and in the last few days I have been enthralled as a new bud has opened out into a flower head.
The light was ideal. Images were taken in the evening as the sun, by then low in the sky, was shining directly through the window. And there was an added bonus which I hadn’t expected. A ghostly image of the flower was reflected onto the interior of the window glass, and so very deliberately I shot the last two images with the main flower head offset in the frame. Apologies for a slightly dirty window!
Finally, a very different image of a pink Geranium on the balcony of our hotel room in Zermatt a few years ago. I have to say this still remains one of my favourite graphic images of this beautiful flower.
