This photograph of a large white/pink peony with a red and white bud nestled next to it was taken in 2009, in Middle Temple Gardens, Inns of Court, London, UK. When I went back to visit in 2014, I was sad to see that all the beautiful flowers had been removed from this section of the Middle Temple Great Garden. I have not seen another peony like this one since.

Rain-soaked Peonies has become my best-selling image. It is the first of my photographs to have been purchased in every format offered: framed prints, stretched canvas prints and greeting cards. I found these beautiful flowers in London at the Middle Temple Garden of the Inns of Court in the spring of 2009. I've never seen any other like them. They were unusual both for their size and color; they were quite large and the color gradation included pink and yellow in the same bloom. Raindrops added to the unique presentation. 0 comments

rain soaked peonies, 2009 11" _ 15" Roses weren't the only flowers I spent time photographing in London. I found these peonies in the Middle Temple Garden at the Inns of Court. As in every garden in London in May and June, there were also roses in abundance, but I usually went to Queen Mary's Gardens in Regent's Park for those. These were unusual both for their size and color; they were quite large and the color gradation included pink and yellow in the same bloom. http://www.activesearchresults 2 comments

roses after the rain, 2009 13.2" _ 11" Flowers with water drops are often very appealing and fun to photograph. In the right light, water can add sparkle or a glint that brightens an otherwise dull bloom. Occasionally you can catch more than light in a raindrop; the many colors of a bed of roses and its surroundings, including the blue of the sky, show up in this refraction. http://www.activesearchresults 1 comment

Starting Out, 2009 Queen Mary's Gardens in London's Regent's Park boasts some of the most beautiful roses in the world. I was there in May when most varieties were at their peak. It was wonderful to be able to visit almost daily and record their growth; the colors from bud to full bloom were spectacular. http://www.activesearchresults 0 comments

After Rodchenko, 2009. 27" x 36" A photograph with minimal color can be as striking as one in full color. Here the light coming through the windows at the Tate Modern in London provides depth and dimension. http://www.activesearchresults

Queen Mary's Roses Just back from a seven-week stay in London and was surprised by the abundance of flowers. I had been planning on spending time in the acclaimed Queen Mary's rose gardens in Regent's Park, but was unaware of all of the other flowers in bloom in May and June. http://www.activesearchresults 0 comments
