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. rona-black.artistwebsites.com 0 comments

During a visit to Philadelphia last week I came across these beautiful pink hydrangea blooms at the entrance to Salon Royale Court on Spruce Street. By the following day they had faded and the petal edges were beginning to dry up and turn brown; the extreme heat had taken its toll. rona-black.artistwebsites.com 0 comments

This agapanthus flower was practically glowing under the mid-afternoon sun in San Francisco. Though its varying shades of purple and lavender were beautiful, the resulting photo is more dramatic in black and white because of the light. rona-black.artistwebsites.com 0 comments
