Unusually, I cannot recall where I photographed these irises. It was somewhere around Cambridge, but I cannot recall where.
I recall walking past some irises in a garden that were a pale colour, not into the blues and not into the violets, and very pale – and being struck by how lovely they were. Then a couple of gardens on, there were blue irises. Perhaps it was there.
The camera really nailed the focus: f5.6 and 1/110 of a second at ISO 200 (base ISO for the Fujifilm X100s)
