The Art of Calla Lilies

I love to photograph Calla Lilies! They are so photogenic with their many varied shapes and forms of flower blooms. So here I present to you some artsy Calla Lilies!

    These look like the old classic big white callas, although I do not recognize the foliage at the bottom of the last picture. Diego Rivera painted the harvest of callas from cut flower fields in Montara, where a few are still naturalized in the forests.

    • Ah…those leaves you see are of another Arum, Dracunculus vulgaris. I’m sure you know what that plant is! I have some images of its smelly bloom somewhere in my myriad of blog posts. They will probably be in bloom in not too long of time!

    Great job photographing these most difficult flowers to capture. Perhaps tied with Foxglove for degree of difficulty.

    • I agree about photographing Foxglove. They are just a long, slender stem of flowers and not very photogenic, pretty much all the same looking to me except for color variations. One has to get really close to the blooms to get some detail.

Thank you!
